Detective Inspector Sean Corrigan is not like other detectives. An unthinkable childhood left him with a fierce determination to protect the innocent. But it also marked him with an ability to identify the darkness in others - a darkness he recognizes still exists deep within himself.
When a young man is found brutally murdered, Corrigan, responsible for South London's Murder Investigation Team, takes the case. But what first appears to be a straightforward domestic murder very quickly leads Corrigan to several other victims and the most dangerous killer he's ever encountered.
The perpetrator changes his modus operandi with each crime and leaves behind not a shred of usable forensic evidence. Still, Corrigan knows beyond a doubt that the same man is behind each of these deaths, and he soon finds himself in a lethal game of cat and mouse with a killer who strikes far too close to home.

ugh - corrupt non-rational police
Too many things are wrong with this book and they would all have to be changed:
- policeman protagonist uses "intuition" to identify the killer.
- police plant evidence in order to aid conviction - this makes the case absurd "We follow the evidence" they say, but in fact they do not
- evidence requirements seem to range from non-existent to ridiculously stringent
I kept listening - I probably would have tossed the book down if I was reading it.
The general plot and the twist were interesting. They were just not enough to outweigh the absurd bits.
If cops identify suspects by imagination then they aren't using evidence. This undercuts the whole procedural story and makes it boring.
