2012: London is hosting the Olympics and the East End is at the centre of the world. Yet surrounding the glamorous Olympic Park are some of the most deprived areas of the city. PI Lee Arnold and his assistant, Mumtaz Hakim, work in these streets, in a community fraught with tensions. When Arnold is hired by a controversial stand- up comedian, he already knows that her routine could make her a target. Arnold and Hakim's new client is being followed. Are her fears justified? As they delve deeper, they discover that this investigation is more complex and sinister than a simple, straightforward case of stalking.
