"Just when you think you have the plot worked out, Oswald throws in another curveball..."
Suspended from duty after her last case ended with a high-profile arrest, DC Constance Fairchild is trying to stay away from the limelight. Fate has other ideas.
Coming home to her London flat, Constance stumbles across a young man, bloodied, mutilated and barely alive. She calls it in and is quickly thrown into the middle of a nationwide investigation. It seems that the victim is just the latest in a string of similar ritualistic attacks.
No matter that she is off duty, no matter that there are those in the Met who would gladly see the back of her, Con can't shake her innate determination to bring the monsters responsibly for this brutality to justice.
