Detective Chief Inspector AJ Colt has lived his life in the limelight. The charismatic star of New Scotland Yard is public relations gold. Everyone loves him. Well, almost everyone. For three years, a serial rapist has been taunting and tormenting him, sending him DVD copies of every drug facilitated rape he commits. It’s been one year since he received the last DVD and the trail is stone cold dead. When a new DVD arrives out of the blue, a familiar landmark takes him away from the job and life he loves and back to his home town of Winchester. The last place on earth he wants to be.
Winchester Detective India Kane does not suffer fools gladly, and she’s surrounded by them. Obsessively private, she keeps her head down, gets on with her job, and doesn’t bother anybody. She likes life that way. When people bother her, things have a tendency to get messy. She’s just landed her first lead case – a drug facilitated rape investigation – and doesn’t take kindly to the arrogant newcomer parachuted in to snatch it from her.
The hunt is on.
But the serial rapist is just warming up. As he escalates, so does his power. And he won’t stop until he’s stolen it all, even if it means bringing his own brand of terror directly to those who hunt him.
As they close in on their suspect, Colt and Kane find themselves on a direct collision course with the darkest depths of the human psyche, their own demons, and a web of secrets, lies, and deceit; spun by those they trust the most.
When their lives collide – it won’t just be the victims’ worlds that are torn apart.
