In this edge-of-your-seat thriller, DI Tom Thorne investigates a serial killer who after murdering 3 young women leaves his fourth victim alive and aware, but paralyzed and unable to communicate - was this the killer's first mistake? Now DI Thorne, carrying his own baggage from a previous case, must try to unlock the secrets Alison may hold, and try to get inside the mind of a calculating, psychopath to end his reign of terror.
DI Tom Thorne, famous for apprehending serial killer, Frank Calvert, 15 years earlier is loved and hated in his department. He works well with both his DCI and forensic pathologist, but his former partner envies and tries to compete with him. This spills into the investigation of what appears to be a serial killer with a very distinct MO. But when a victim, Maggie, is found and kept alive in hospital, DI Thorne sees the facts turning another way. Maggie is in a sort of conscious coma, what her doctor calls "locked in syndrome," and cannot move or communicate. DI Tom Thorne is determined to find the answers, any way he can.
