How can you protect your daughter, when her killer might be a friend?
The small village of Summerfield finds itself caught up in a nightmare when its daughters begin to go missing, only to turn up, brutally murdered. It soon becomes clear that the girls are being stalked by a serial killer, every bit as savage and sadistic as any from the pages of history.
The investigation led by Sergeant Harrison and Constable Jones soon leads them to a retired detective turned author, Alex Stevens, the village's newest resident. While Sergeant Harrison searches for proof of Stevens' guilt, Constable Jones looks into the possibility that someone else is responsible for the murders, and the village residents, impatient with the police, take the law into their own hands.
How many people will die before the killer is stopped?
A dark tale of paranoia, prejudice and vigilantism.
