A peace march in Londonderry erupt​s in mayhem on Assumption Day, 1970​, and the embattled Royal Ulster Constabulary summons Chief Inspector Jack Hamilton​.
​In the aftermath​ he ​sees curls of auburn hair gently wav​ing in the drainage water between riot-damaged cars. He discover​s a young lady who arrived to her death fashionably dressed. Her glazed eyes look curiously skyward and her mouth ​is slightly open, as if she forgot a question.

The victim in this march threatens an unstable truce​. Can the inspector find her killer before tensions burst between a Protestant militia and a Catholic rebellion willing to tear Northern Ireland apart​?​
