(From the publisher):
It's DS Logan McRae's first day back on the job after a year-off on the side, and it couldn't get much worse. Four-year-old David Reid's body is discovered in a ditch, strangled, mutilated and a long time dead. And he's only the first. There's a killer stalking Granite City, and the local media are baying for blood.
If that wasn't enough, Logan also has to contend with his new boss, DI Insch, who doesn't suffer fools gladly and thinks everyone's a fool, and his own girlfriend, the beautiful but chilly Isobel MacAlister, who also happens to be the chief pathologist. The only good news is that WPC 'Ball Breaker' Watson, Logan's new guardian angel.
The dead are piling up in the morgue almost as fast as the snow on the streets, and Logan knows time is running out. More children are going missing. If Logan isn't careful, he's going to end up joining them.
