A terrifying new psychological chiller featuring clinical psychologist Tony Hill.
A clinically efficient killer is murdering psychologists on the Continent. The victims are scattered around at least three different countries, complicating any investigation, but detectives agree on two things - a single killer is at work and a professional should be brought in to profile the murderer.
Psychological profiler Dr Tony Hill no longer wants to delve into the minds of serial killers - his wounds are still raw from his brutal encounter with Jacko Vance. But the European case is about to get personal: an old colleague of his is targeted by the murderer and Tony is unable to remain uninvolved.
Detective chief Inspector Carol Jordan is en route to Berlin too, on a covert operation to incriminate a millionaire trafficker in drugs and human beings. An already perilous job is made more dangerous when Carol suspects her own masters of playing a deeper, nastier game than the one for which she was prepared.
To trap their monsters, Tony Hill and Carol Jordan have to explore a past of Nazi atrocities and Stasi abuses, and a present-day world where cruelty is just as wide-spread but wears a different face . . . and for both of them their hunt will lead to terrible personal danger.
