A killer running rings around the police.
When a retired doctor is found brutally mutilated and murdered, DI Karen Heath initially puts it down to a stranger killing, especially when there are no clues, forensics or witnesses. It’s the worst kind of case for her team to take on.
Who would want to hurt a man in his 60’s caring for his wife who suffers from dementia?
But, when the post-mortem reveals something more sinister, Karen discovers she is dealing with a cold, ruthless killer with a long line of victims, a hunger for murder, and a twisted sense of justice.
The trail becomes more complex when her case is linked to an earlier unsolved murder of a male nurse in York.
What started as a difficult and tragic murder investigation of an ageing family man, turns into a race against time as Karen finds herself in York where she believes the answers lie.
Paired with an intriguing and complex DCI Zac Walker, the duo piece together their cases and soon realise they’re after the same killer.
Can Karen and Zac crack the case before everyone on the list is dead?
