It was a vicious, calculated murder. The killer selected his
victim at London’s Euston station, followed her home on the tube, and strangled
her to death in front of her child. At the same time, killed in the same way, a
second body is discovered at the back of King’s Cross station. It is a grisly
coincidence that eerily echoes the murder of two other women, stabbed to death
months before on the same day.
It is Detective Inspector Tom Thorne who sees the link and
comes to a horrifying conclusion. This is not a serial killer that the police
are up against. This is two of them. Finding the body used to be the worst part
of the job, but not anymore. Now each time a body is found, Thorne must live
with the knowledge that somewhere out there is a second victim, waiting to be
discovered. But whilst the methods might be the same, the manner of the
killings is strikingly different. Thorne comes to realize that he is hunting
two very different killers. One is ruthless and in control, while his partner
in crime is submissive, compliant, terrified.
Thorne must catch a man whose need to manipulate is as great
as his need to kill, a man who will threaten those closest to Thorne himself, a
man who will show him that the ability to inspire terror is the deadliest
weapon of all. Download and start listening now!
