‘Father, I committed murder…I haven’t been to confession since then…God forgive me…she didn’t deserve that…’
Detective Superintendent Mark Pemberton is first on the scene of a deadly car accident and he overhears a deathbed confession that sends him reeling. With his last breath, James Browning admits to killing a woman — the problem for Pemberton? No murders have been reported.
But when a woman’s body is found in the woods a few days later, Pemberton gets more than he bargained for. The victim is missing her shoes — the strange calling card of a serial killer who has terrorised the country for a decade.
Has Pemberton inadvertently stumbled upon the mass murderer eluding the police? Or does he have another murder on his hands?
This chilling thriller is the third in Nicholas Rhea’s Mark Pemberton series.
Confession was first published in 1997.
