Then one night, a young girl is tied to the river bank and left for the tide. Anderson gets there, but she dies in his arms.
Working round the clock his team discover these strange crimes are linked to an elusive criminal mastermind known as The Puppeteer. But unable to find him, unable to stop the murders, Anderson is forced to follow the only lead he has - Skelpie Fairbairn . . .
But which is worse - The devil you don't know, or the one you do . . .?
