A body with multiple stab wounds and four tiny puncture marks is found lying in a pool of blood, the victim beaten beyond recognition. Even seasoned detectives regard the damage inflicted as overkill.
With a faceless, nameless victim, the inquiry’s on the back foot from the start. Stakes are raised when a second body with almost identical injuries is discovered. DS Bev Morriss is convinced there’ll be more deaths - and the race is on to find the links before the killer strikes again.
Bev is also pursuing a cold case that’s close to her heart: the baby Fay inquiry is about to heat up - but Bev is playing with fire and risks being burned.
Book 10 of the DS Bev Morriss crime series.
