Will DI Geraldine Steel become a serial killer's ultimate trophy?
When DI Geraldine Steel relocates to the quiet rural town of Woolsmarsh, she expects to find her new home to be somewhere where nothing much ever happens; a space where she can battle her demons in private. But when she finds herself pitted against a twisted killer preying on local young women she quickly discovers how wrong she was...
By day, the park is a place for children's games, for people walking their dogs or taking a short cut to avoid the streets. But in the shadows a predator prowls. When an unwitting bystander comes forward as a witness to an attack, she quickly becomes the next object of his murderous obsessions.
DI Geraldine Steel is locked into a race against time, determined to find the killer before they discover yet another naked corpse. Can she save the lives of the town's young women - or will Geraldine herself become the killer's ultimate trophy?
