When a sleepy hillside town is beset by a spate of burglaries followed by a murder, Detective Jack Harris must quickly uncover the link between them.

A series of blood-curdling screams heard in the dead of the Cumbrian night has a London woman new to the area convinced that a murder has occurred.

When the body of a young woman is in fact found, rumours quickly spread that a serial killer is at work in the small Pennine community of Levton Bridge.

When the clues do indeed begin to point to a connection with other missing women, the pressure from on high to find answers increases ten-fold.

Fighting the media circus’s constant attempts to thwart the investigation, detective Jack Harris must also battle the confusion and doubts among his own team in order to find the killer.
