Extreme Crime Needs Extreme Measures.
DCI Kett is back, heading Norfolk Constabulary’s brand-new Extreme Crime Task Force.
And it’s just in time.
The body of a woman bound in thorns has been discovered in Norwich’s historic Cow Tower. In her mouth is a severed finger wrapped in a scrap of red cloth, and the first few lines of a fairy tale.
“Once upon a time, a young maiden waited to be saved from a hideous monster.” The finger belongs to another missing woman, and if Kett, Porter and Savage want to find her alive they must follow a chain of blood-drenched riddles, each victim leading to the next and each crime more horrific than the last.
Because this killer is telling a story, and he’ll do anything to stop it having a happy ending.
