As the case becomes ever more complex, Brodie receives a chilling photograph, establishing a link to a number of brutal murders and a suspected paedophile ring.
It becomes apparent that a serial killer is haunting the city - and that powerful people are involved, intent on covering up past crimes.
Brodie herself becomes a target - both for a depraved killer and for deadly forces in the highest of circles...A shocking, atmospheric thriller that combines a centuries-old conspiracy with heart-stopping terror for fans of Ian Rankin and Mo Hayder...
