Eight years ago they found a teenager's body buried on the moor, and they were certain that it was one of psychotic rapist and multiple murderer Jerome Monk's three victims.

Monk has escaped and seems to be targeting anyone involved in that original ill-fated operation. Lured back to the moors, Hunter begins to realise that things aren't quite as they seemed.

Some moments burn in the mind for ever. The landing is dark. Light comes from a window at the far end, enough to run by. Breath comes hard. From the stairs sound heavy footfalls in pursuit. The landing ends in a last doorway. There is no more running, only the need to hide...Imagine not knowing the father of your child. Not knowing his name. What he looks like. Or what sort of person he is. Although she is desperate for a baby, that is something that Kate Powell cannot accept. Single, independent, she likes to be in control of her own life - even if it has, somehow, become strangely shallow and meaningless. Then Kate meets a man who seems to be the answer to all her problems. But we all know appearances can be dangerously deceptive. And Kate should too. Soon her life is out her hands. And out of control
