Rated 0

Crime & mystery, Thriller / suspense, Police law & police procedures


Claire Beacham arrives home to a parcel on her doorstep - no note, no label. As a politician she has received her fair share of hate mail, but there's no way she could be prepared for what's inside the box. A severed head falls to her kitchen floor; the rich, red drip of blood on her hands.

The terrifying package is a message. But who sent it and why?

DI Finn and DC Mattie Paulsen are on the case. But what they don't yet know is that this is only Claire's first delivery. There will be more.

And each package means another body...
