A dismembered young woman from Penrith in Cumbria has been found buried in Kielder Forest, Northumbria with her hand protruding from the ground. She's only the first though, because two other women have been abducted from Penrith as well. DCI Harriet Hogg from Bedlington in Northumbria isn't happy. The case now involves two police forces and she's required to establish a Joint Task Force with Penrith. It's the worst possible scenario though, because DCI Tanner Edge is in charge there, and they have history. There's a serial killer on the loose who could be linked to a previous case from twenty years before, and they have very little time to catch him. Can they bury their differences and work together to before he strikes again?
