When four postcards are sent anonymously to the staff of an advice centre, each with the word “murder” scribbled in a foreign language and the same precise OS map reference, the police are called. DCI Hennessey and his team of detectives visit the sinister location and make a chilling discovery: The body of a professional man who had been reported missing ten years earlier.
Who sent the postcards, and why so long after the crime? As Hennessey and his team investigate – uncovering more past murders, a case of local authority corruption and two manipulative wives keen to gift-wrap their husbands as murderers in order to benefit financially from their estates – they find themselves drawn into a puzzling and dangerous investigation.
