During a blackout on the streets of London on a freezing evening in late 1944, a young Polish land girl, Rosa Nowak, is suddenly and brutally killed. For the police this is a shocking and seemingly random crime. No one can find a reason why someone would want to murder an innocent refugee.
He looked up at Billy. 'I know there's an argument for calling it a chance killing, but I don't accept that. It's already been established the act was deliberate, and I can't see it happening in a moment of rage or insanity. It was too cold, too clean, too efficient. The killer knew what he was about... But as to why he murdered her', Madden shook his head hopelessly as he turned away, 'that defies all reason.'
Their only lead points towards war-torn Europe - but as the fighting sweeps across the continent, will they find the killer before he strikes again?
