You think you know him. Until he’s dead.
When Cameron Swift is gunned down outside his family home, DC Beth Chamberlain is appointed Family Liaison Officer: a dual role that requires her to support the family, and also investigate them.
Cameron Swift is shot dead outside his house in a quiet residential area early one Sunday morning, as he put his golf bag in the boot of the car. The biker assassin was gone before anyone saw him, leaving no trace, but not before he took the time to photograph Cameron’s body lying in a pool of blood. Soon afterwards an anonymous tweet appears showing the photo.

A riveting psychological thriller inspired by the never-caught Zodiac Killer, about a young detective determined to apprehend the serial murderer who destroyed her family and terrorized a city twenty years earlier.
Recently appointed Narcotics Task Force Detective Caitlin Hendrix is taken to the scene of a gruesome murder, and recognises the man waiting for her. Senior Homicide Sergeant Joe Guthrie. When Guthrie shows her a body it hits her like a punch in the gut, taking her back twenty years to when her father, Mack, was the lead detective in the hunt for a serial killer. The Prophet, as he was called, was never caught and his subsequent reign of terror all but destroyed Mack, physically and mentally, as his obsession to catch the killer escalated. Then—after a five year killing spree—nothing. The trail and the case went cold. Now, after so many years, he’s back and has Caitlin in his sights.
