What you need to know before your trail

Time is about to run out for Joseph Miller. The ex-marine is being stalked in his retirement by a twisted serial killer with a flair for the theatrical: The Holy Ghost. When the spectre strikes again, Miller becomes the sixth in a chain of grisly murders going back decades.

Detective Tom McHale is brought in to lead the investigation, having already put away a multiple murderer. His reputation is on the rise, and an autoimmune disease and self-medication don’t dull his edge.

To hunt The Holy Ghost, McHale enlists the help of a Native American FBI agent, a Jesuit priest, and a powerful supercomputer named Mother. Together, they form a formidable alliance that will stop at nothing to track down the killer and bring him to justice. But time waits for no-one, and as the hour approaches, the seventh victim could be closer than they think.

Travel Guide

Stockport and London

Several locations are mentioned in the hunt for the killer but few are evoked. The main ones are Stockport, Manchester and London. However locations are not that important other than to show how far and wide the hunt for the killer goes.
