Alastair Sheridan has it all. Fresh faced and handsome, he’s a self-made millionaire with a beautiful wife and children, and in the chaotic world of British politics, where heroes are in short supply, he has a real chance of becoming Prime Minister. But Alastair Sheridan also has a secret. He’s a serial killer with a taste for young women, and he’s been killing for years, protected and abetted by some very powerful individuals. Only a handful of people know what kind of monster he is, but disgraced detective Ray Mason, languishing in prison and awaiting trial for murder, is one of them.
