Chelsea is a beautiful borough for beautiful people, but it has a dark underside of deprivation, violence, greed - and murder. Bodies have a way of showing up, and things are rarely what they seem, but Max's determination and acuity mean he'll find a way to root out the truth and bring those responsible to justice - regardless of their wealth or status.
