When four bodies are discovered on Langdon Bay, Detective Inspector Wallace Hammond is called to investigate. It is evident that all of the deceased were subjected to a hate driven crime. Hammond and his team have only one clue on which to base their investigations; the victims were foreign. As the victims are slowly and painstakingly identified, there emerges a full portrait of the dead people and the terrifying truth of their ordeals.
Hammond becomes more personally involved as he is drawn deeper into an underworld that stretches beyond home shores into an organised and well established network of crime, with some leads that are closer to home than he first realises.
Shoes on a Wire is the second in a series of Wallace Hammond Crime Novels.
