(From the publisher):
Everyone has a few ghosts in their lives, especially John Coffin, Chief Commander of the Second City of London's Police. He had thought all his were laid to rest though, and is hoping for a calmer life with his actress wife Stella Pinero.
But he is soon to learn how wrong he is when a parcel containing dismembered limbs is found outside the Serena Seddon Shelter for battered wives, not far from Coffin's own home in St Luke's Tower. The link to Coffin is more sinister than mere proximity, for the initials J.C. are written on the package, and the shelter is housed in the building where he lived on his arrival in the Second City.
The discovery opens a door, through which troop a succession of horrible and violent events: lies, deception and sudden death. Thus Coffin's ghost walks!
