Detective Inspector Jonah Gabriel returns to work after a botched operation that resulted in him sustaining a near-fatal bullet wound. It may be his first day back on the job but he's soon thrown straight into an investigation to uncover the identity of the person responsible for killing a notorious drug baron. Gabriel however is not alone in his enquiries, as Joseph Bede, a former associate of the deceased dealer, is also out to find answers. As the two delve deeper into the mystery, their worlds are set for a collision course.

From the cop with a bullet in his brain, whose amnesia leaves him doubtful of his own moral compass; to the drug-lord driven by a profound personal tragedy, risking it all on one last deal; to the brilliantly lethal puppet-master who gradually emerges from the shadows to bring the story to its shocking climax The Shadow Line explores the morality of these characters as they negotiate the repercussions of Wratten's death and attempt to navigate the fine line between right and wrong.
As the thread around Wratten's operation begins to unravel, the web of intrigue becomes more complex and the question of which side of the line they stand on becomes increasingly blurred.
