A woman has been found brutally murdered. Her arms and hands have been bound. She is thought to be a prostitute, Della Mornay. For Detective Chief Inspector John Shefford and his partner Detective Sergeant Bill Otley, the case appears straightforward. A rare blood type discovered at the scene points to one man, George Marlow, previously convicted of rape.

When Shefford is unable to complete the investigation, Detective Chief Inspector Jane Tennison is assigned to the case-a first-ever for a female DCI. Immediately she comes up against a blue wall of resistance, gradually uncovering secrets-designed to protect DCI Shefford-that muddy the case.

The discover of a second body throws the investigation into confusion when the autopsy and crime scene investigators produce shocking new evidence. What started as the investigation of one murder soon grows into a national hunt for clues in pursuit of a merciless serial killer.

Someone is picking up pretty young women and slaughtering them. Could it still be the first suspect, George Marlow? With little support from above, no support from below, and at great personal cost, DCI Tennison faces a long hard road that will lead to the darker places of a man's soul. A place where most closely kept secrets are the most terrifying...and the most revealing.
