He was never truly gone, only biding his time…
Late on midsummer’s night, there is a splash in the river Thames. A body is found on an island, asphyxiated and laced with strange markings. For DCI Craig Gillard it’s a baffling case. The victim’s identity is elusive, clues are scarce and every witness has something to hide.
Meanwhile one of Britain’s deadliest serial killers is finally up for parole after a deal to reveal the location of two missing bodies. The felon has his own plans to get even with witnesses, accusers and the officer who caught him thirty years before. And who was that? A young trainee, by the name of Gillard.

WHAT DID I THINK?
Nick is one of my favourite authors so I have read and reviewed all his books on my blog. This one is really intriguing I doubt anyone will guess who committed the murders……where he gets his ideas from I will never know. A brilliant story writer with red herrings to throw you off course so giving you a choice who the culprit is. As usual, I didn’t guess it but enjoyed this so much and will recommend you get this on your Christmas list.
