What you need to know before your trail

A young woman is brutally murdered in a New York bookshop.

But things take an even more eerie tone when the killer contacts

Detective Callum Doyle  telling him that he will give him clues as to who he intends to kill next but only on the condition that Doyle doesn’t tell anyone.

Doyle has no choice but to listen to the killer’s ‘advice’ and to try and establish a link between those already dead and those due to die. Oh and that’s not forgetting the need to protect his job and his family. What would people say if they found out what he was doing?
