"Russell has a knack for the unusual..."
When three dead bodies turn up in quick succession, DS Ian Peterson becomes so wrapped up in the complex case he pays little heed to his marriage or forthcoming promotion.
The first victim is a middle class housewife, stabbed in a park. Her husband is in the clear until the alibi providing prostitute is murdered. While the police are busy collecting evidence, a second prostitute joins her friend on the coroner's slab.
Peterson, accompanied by young a DC struggles to make sense of the case and identify the elusive killer before he strikes again.
