A depraved killer is leaving a trail of bloody clues.
Can the police solve them before it’s too late?
Barnwell, Yorkshire, 2008
Detective Sergeant Hunter Kerr is called to the scene of a brutal murder. A fourteen-year-old girl has been viciously slaughtered.
But the killer has left behind a clue. Strange marks are gouged into the corpse and a bloody playing card has been left beside it. As Kerr and his team start to unravel the mystery they are confronted with a gruesome discovery: the mummified remains of another teenage girl.
This corpse bears all the hallmarks of the first slaying and yet the body has been buried for well over a decade.
Is a serial killer stalking Yorkshire? Why were the murders committed so far apart? Could there be more bodies waiting to be discovered…?
