Overview

Christmas bombs and Lucky Lucan on the run, Leeds United and the Bay City Rollers, The Exorcist and It Ain't Half Hot Mum. Yorkshire, Christmas 1974. Edward Dunford, North of England Crime Correspondent, has been sent to cover the case of the missing girl Clare Kemplay. He's convinced she's been murdered. When the little girl turns up dead in a ditch with swan's wings stitched into her back, Eddie's instincts prove right. But standing between him and the truth is a society riddled with corruption and brutality. Getting answers will mean a toss-up between his sanity and his life. Winter 1974's looking like a real season in hell.
