“The place is dead now at night. It’s like it was in wartime. As soon as night falls, you don’t know what’s going to happen.”
Superintendent Littlejohn arrives in the village of Carleton Unthank to investigate a triple murder that has left the town crippled with fear.
With the threat of another murder looming, Littlejohn must catch the killer before the body count rises any further.
