A man's body is found on a canal towpath. In his pocket, a magnetic letter in the shape of an E. Days later, a second victim is found, this time with the letter V tucked into her clothing. As the body count rises, the eerie, childlike clues point to a pattern that sends DS Allie Shenton and her colleagues into full alert. The race is on. Allie and the team must work quickly to determine where the killer will strike next. The rules are simple but deadly-to catch the killer, they must follow the leader. From the acclaimed author of Taunting the Dead comes a flesh-creeping tale of a child's game with a terrifying, grown-up twist. This is the second book in the DS Allie Shenton series but can be enjoyed as a stand-alone story.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Anne Flosnik moves into new territory with this chilling mystery involving a serial killer. DS Allie Shenton follows the cryptic clues placed by the killer as he embarks on a murder spree. Twenty-five years after being bullied, beaten, and abused by classmates as well as his father, Patrick races the clock to kill them all before his father is released from prison. Flosnik carefully and methodically delivers the story. However, she seems miscast for this audiobook as her steady, soft narration is at odds with the threatening aspects of the plot. As a result, the listener's trance is often broken. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
