A serial killer is on the loose in Hampstead; five victims have been claimed in 18 months. Detectives are racing to identify the killer, unravelling the scant clues he leaves behind before he can strike again. A pacey police procedural, full of twists and turns, the story delves into the team's investigation - from the clues gleaned from forensic evidence to the aid of psychological profiling - as they draw ever closer to their suspect.
Paying subtle homage to the classic crime stories of the 1920s, the Golden Age of detective fiction that included such writers as Dorothy L Sayers and Agatha Christie, A Killer In Profile is also reminiscent of popular television detective dramas such as Midsomer Murders and Inspector Morse. Utterly gripping, this is a vibrant portrayal of the familiar sights and sounds of Hampstead set against the thrilling suspense of a murder mystery.
