The following series include: a murder inquiry in the African Caribbean community; a 17-year-old rent boy murder; an abducted toddler; the manager of an exclusive country club murdered; a shooting case of a young drug dealer; new murders casting doubt on a case she solved previously; and the torture and murder of a young Bosnian refugee.
