A rash of grisly serial
murders plagued Seattle until the infamous “Beacon Hill Butcher” was finally
hunted down and killed by police chief Edward Shank in 1985. Now, some thirty
years later, Shank, retired and widowed, is giving up his large rambling
Victorian house to his grandson Matt, whom he helped raise.
Settling back into his
childhood home and doing some renovations in the backyard to make the house
feel like his own, Matt, a young up-and-coming chef and restaurateur, stumbles
upon a locked crate he has never seen before. Curious, he picks the padlock and
makes a discovery so gruesome it will forever haunt him. Faced with this deep
dark family secret, Matt must decide whether to keep what he knows buried in
the past, go to the police, or take matters into his own hands.
Meanwhile Matt’s girlfriend,
Sam, has always suspected that her mother was murdered by the Beacon Hill
Butcher—two years after the
supposed Butcher was gunned down. As she pursues leads that will prove her
right, Sam heads right into the path of Matt’s terrible secret.

fast-paced suspense, and twists around every corner, The Butcher will
