A week´s holiday in a luxurious Yorkshire time-share is just whatScotland Yard´s Superintendent Duncan Kincaid needs. But the discovery of a body floating in the whirlpool bath ends Kincaid´s vacation before it´s begun. One of his new acquaintances at Followdale House is dead; another is a killer. Despite a distinct lack of cooperation from the local constabulary, Kincaid´s keen sense of duty won´t allow him to ignore the heinous crime, impelling him to send for his enthusiastic young assistant, Sergeant Gemma James. But the stakes are raised dramatically when a second murder occurs, and Kincaid and James find themselves in a determined hunt for a fiendish felon who enjoys homicide a bit too much.
