Christmas approaches. A killer stalks the
streets of Manchester. For him the City’s
miraculous regeneration had unacceptable consequences. This is the reckoning. DCI Tom Caton enlists the help of
forensic profiler Kate Webb, placing her in mortal danger. The trail leads from the site of the old mass cholera graves, through
Moss Side, the Gay Village, the penthouse opulence of canalside apartment blocks, and the
bustling Christmas Market, to the Victorian Gothic grandeur of the Town Hall.
Time is running out. For Tom, for Kate…and
for the City.
