Dedicated, intuitive and utterly obsessive,
DCI James Langton is ruthless in his pursuit of a gang of illegal
immigrants, killers of a young prostitute. When he is horrifically, almost
fatally injured by one of them, it falls upon DI Anna Travis to put her own
career on hold as she nurses him through his intense frustration and
desperation to bring his would-be murderer to justice. Then Anna is assigned
to a different case, the brutal killing of a quiet, studious woman whose
body was discovered by her daughter returning home from school. A senseless
attack with no obvious motive or immediate suspect. Until, chillingly, the
case becomes unexpectedly linked with Langton's and Anna finds herself under
similar threat from those who almost destroyed his career and his life.
Young Anna Travis has been assigned to her
first murder case - a series of killings that has shocked even the most
hardened of detectives. They started eight years ago - now the body count is
up to six. The method of killing is identical, the backgrounds of the girls
identical - all drug-users and prostitutes. Then a seventh body is found.
The modus operandi is the same - but the victim is a young student with the
'face of an angel'. The profile of the murderer has changed dramatically.
Determined to earn the respect of her male colleagues, Anna stumbles on a
vital piece of information which links one man to the killings, a much-loved
actor on the brink of international stardom. His arrest would create a media
frenzy. But if he were found innocent, his wouldn't be the only career over
- Anna's hard fought for reputation would be destroyed once and for all ...
