---------- SCAREDY CAT
A vicious killer follows his victim home and strangles her in front of her child. Across London a second body is discovered at the back of King's Cross station. And these grisly events eerily echoes the murder of two previous women, stabbed to death months before on the same day.
DI Tom Thorne sees the link and comes to a horrifying conclusion: two killers are way more deadly than one . . .
It's only ten days since Douglas Remfry's release from prison, having served seven years for rape, and now he's dead: naked on a bare mattress in a grubby north London hotel room. Someone knew he was coming out. Someone wanted to mete out some punishment of their own.
And when a second sex offender is found dead, DI Tom Thorne knows he has a vicious vigilante on his hands . . .
THE BURNING GIRL
X marks the spot - and when that spot is a corpse's naked back and the X is carved in blood, DI Tom Thorne is in no doubt that the dead man is the latest victim of a particularly vicious killer.
But when an X is carved on Thorne's own front door, he knows the smouldering embers of this case are about to erupt into flames . . .
