A sacrificial murder. A child’s body. And a web of lies and corruption.
The dismembered body of a young migrant boy is discovered wrapped in a blanket on the edge of a Brighton housing estate.
As more bodies turn up, it soon becomes clear that a sadistic killer is preying on the children of asylum seekers, mutilating them in some kind of bizarre sacrificial ritual.
When DI Scott Baker and his team are called to investigate, they discover a community too terrified to speak out, and a local pastor with secrets to hide.
Even worse, the case is linked to corruption in the Home Office and it becomes clear that someone there knows more than they are saying. And they are determined to have the entire investigation shut down.
Can Scott stop this ruthless serial killer before more innocent children are slaughtered?
An Evil Offering – the fifth novel in the gripping crime series featuring DI Scott Baker.
Previously published by the author as Sacrifice.
