Detectives Ruth Lake and Greg Carver, introduced in the

works of art.
While Britain is obsessed with the newest hit true-crime
television show, Fact, or Fable? detectives Ruth Lake and
Greg Carver are tormented by a fiendish flesh-and-blood

and terrorize the public.
Ruth is joined in the investigation by her partner Greg
Carver, who is slowly regaining his strength after a run-in

In this utterly engrossing and thrilling tale of suspense,
a pair of seasoned detectives face off against a wickedly
smart and inventive psychopath in a tense, bloody game that
leads to a shocking end.
