It follows the apparent accidental overdose of Ronnie an addict in a squat with possible Satanic links. The DJ in mylar has a 3" closed tear along gutter and across spine at crown, scrape and chip to heel. Only Rebus seems to care about a death which looks more like a murder every day, about a seductive danger he can almost taste, appealing to the darkest corners of his mind. In a shadowy, crumbling housing development, a junkie lies dead of an overdose, his bruised body surrounded by signs of Satanic worship. Rebus is able to arrest Hyde's owner and several high-profile members, but to his disgust all die suspicious deaths while imprisoned: the powers-that-be are covering it up to prevent scandal.If we never talk about this shit, the problem will never go away, which, for many people (namely, sex traffickers and child pornographers and pedophiles), is a great thing.
