The two used to be friends before Connor's behaviour caused a bitter rift. And the news the policeman brings is even less welcome: the psychotic rapist and murderer Jerome Monk has escaped from high security prison. And he's a name all too familiar to Hunter. Ten years before he'd part of an ill-fated Body Recovery team assembled to try and locate the graves of Monk's teenage victims on the bleak expanse of Dartmoor. Only one of the missing girls' bodies was ever found, and Monk's own controversial involvement in the search led only to more failure ... as well as a violent denouement. And now Monk is loose again - and inexplicably intent on targeting anyone involved with the original search."@en ;
