When the case for murder against Daniel Carr, a drug dealer, collapses, Rebus is held responsible by Davis Haigh, the prosecutor, and by Brian Robertson, another dealer whose son was killed by Carr. Rebus comes under investigation by Clive Dawson, a former friend, and Trish Fuller, an ambitious DS. Rebus and Clarke reopen the murder case, which is complicated when Carr and his brother are found dead. The Knots and Crosses of the title are the anonymous notes received by Clarke at various times during the investigation, of a cross of crudely tied sticks.
