Detective Inspector January David has always put his professional before his private life. But now, as he visits this latest crime scene, his two worlds clash horrifically. Confronted with a ghostly figure suspended ten feet above a theatre stage with blood pouring from her face into a coffin below, it's clear this gruesome execution scene is the work of an elusive serial killer - and the body hanging above is that of the forth known victim.
But Girl 4 is different: she is alive - barely. And January recognises her.
If he wants to save his own neck and prevent the existence of a Girl 5, January must get inside the mind of a serial killer and beat him at his own game.
