When you can't prove it's murder, how do you get justice?

DI Kate Fletcher is called to a gory crime scene just outside Doncaster. Julia Sullivan – a prominent right-wing local politician – has been murdered in her bath, her wrists and throat slashed with a shard of mirror. Despite the presence of a note, the death is clearly not suicide. 

A second fake suicide is discovered near the village of Turton. At the scene, Kate is struck by the similarity of the note to the one at the Sullivan scene. Is it possible that the victims are connected?

When a third murder is uncovered, Kate realises she is on the hunt for a vicious killer, whose motive may well be buried in the past…


It all starts with a reunion…

When two bodies are discovered over a hundred miles apart the most obvious link appears to be DI Kate Fletcher, but, as Kate's team investigate, a more sinister connection develops - one firmly rooted in the past. 

The discovery of another victim confirms Kate's suspicion that this is a murderer with a clear agenda.  All the evidence leads back to Thorpe – Kate’s childhood home – and the events of what should have been an idyllic summer more than thirty years ago.

As Kate starts to unravel the complex web, she realises the answer might lie in the links between the victims; specific individuals are being targeted.

Can the killer be stopped in time to save the final person on the list?
