FROM SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER COMES AN ELECTRIFYING CRIME THRILLER FOR FANS OF IAN RANKIN, PETER JAMES AND STUART MCBRIDE
A devastating serial killer. A chilling cold case. Only DI Tony McLean realises the connection . . .
Edinburgh is horrified by a series of bloody killings. Deaths for which there appears to be neither rhyme nor reason, and which leave the city's police stumped.
DI Tony McLean is focused on the investigation, but his attention is drawn by a chilling cold case - a young girl ritualistically murdered, her remains hidden for sixty years.
It seems impossible that there could be any connection between the cases, but McLean starts to wonder.
Because if it's true, they might be facing an evil beyond anything they ever imagined . . .
