Bookish Detective Constable Tom Holloway is the newest member of the Murder Investigation Team. Socially awkward and reserved, his professional relationship with the fiery Sam Blaize starts off shaky. Nevertheless, he is nevertheless eager to please, and works best when left alone to potter away in silence. His contributions to an investigation are often astute, something that Detective Lancer appreciates.
While his seemingly uptight attitude and strange beliefs in New Age religion may not endear him to colleagues, Tom keeps much of his personal life to himself, and seldom talks about his past or his family. Could it be that he is harbouring a dark secret?
With London gearing up to host the Olympics, the city doesn't need a serial killer stalking the streets, but they've got one anyway.
Leaving a trail of brutal and bizarre murders, the police force is no closer to finding the latest psychopath than Detective Inspector Kurt Lancer is in finding a solution for his daughter's disability.
Thrust into the pressure cooker of a high profile case, the struggling single parent is wound tight as he tries to balance care of his own family with the safety of a growing population of potential victims.
One of whom could be his own daughter.
Fingers point in every direction as the public relations nightmare grows, and Lancer's only answer comes in the form of a single oak leaf left at each crime scene.
