Young girls are disappearing around the country. Nobody moves around inside the messy heads of serial killers like Dr Tony Hill. Now heading the recently founded National Profiling Task Force, they are given the details of thirty missing teenagers and asked to discover whether there is a sinister link between any of the cases. Only one officer comes up with a concrete theory, but it is ridiculed by the rest of her group . . . until a killer murders and mutilates one of their number. Could the outrageous suspicion possibly be true?
