A serial killer is on the loose behind the lines on the Western Front during the First World War.

As the armies mass against each other readying for battle, villages close to the front line find their children disappearing. The military is indifferent – civilian problems are not their affair.

The police are powerless – the military will not allow civilians to investigate in a war zone.

Set against the build-up to the battle of Cambrai in November 1917, this historical thriller builds to an unexpected, heartbreaking finale.

“A writer to watch.” Martin Edwards
