Identical twins Jack and Dave Bennett enjoy nothing better than a rowdy night out in London -- listening to hot jazz, hoisting a few pints, flirting with girls and then finishing off the evening by roughing up a stranger. But one night they ambush the wrong victim, a young black man who fights back. Suddenly bottles break and a knife is drawn, and when it's over, Jack stumbles home alone -- only to awaken the next morning to discover his brother's bed empty and policemen at the door. The police are investigating a fatal car accident that left two people dead, their bodies burned beyond recognition. One of the dead was apparently the car's owner, a young black doctor, but the only clue to the second corpse's identity is a knife engraved with Dave Bennett's name and address. And no words are spoken of a man found slain in an alley on the other side of town. With his life brutally upended, Jack finds that his search for answers is drawing him closer to the dead doctor's beautiful sister, Michelle, and causing him to question everything he's ever believed about race, justice, family, and the violent urban world around him
