The Cardiff Lockdown Murders

A city emerging from Covid lockdown restrictions. A mutilated corpse is the second murder after the brutal killing of a sexual predator. Detective Marco is convinced a single killer is at work.

A profiler, insisted on by Marco’s Superintendent, only adds to his frustration. Can Marco win the day? After two more deaths Marco realises how all the threads pull together and who might be the final victim of the killer intent on gruesome revenge.

The world might have been locked away and policing very different, but DI John Marco knows that behind closed doors, the bad guys have merely been waiting patiently for their moment to strike.
