You could find your new best friend on the net... or discover your worst nightmare.
A young woman's naked body is found in the undergrowth of Holland Park, London. Gagged, with her wrists and ankles bound, she has been posed, almost like a statue, kneeling as if in prayer - or begging for mercy. Stuffed into the woman's mouth is a wad of paper. On the paper is a verse by a Victorian poet, renowned for his sadomasochistic tendencies. Progress on the investigation is frustratingly slow, until a link is made to another murder that occurred exactly a year earlier
Bestselling novelist Joe Logan walks out into a hot summer's evening in central London. The next day his body is found dumped in a disused Victorian crypt at the Brompton Cemetery. He has been tied up, shot and castrated. The killing has the hallmarks of a professional hit. Detective Inspector Mark Tartaglia has a number of leads to follow, but he's getting nowhere. Then another body is found, in an old boathouse on the Thames, killed in an identical fashion to Logan. Both men were savagely tortured before they died. A vicious and methodical killer is at work but what does he want and how does he lure his victims to their death? If only Tartaglia can find the link between the two dead men maybe he can find the killer before he strikes again . . .
You could find your new best friend on the web... or discover your worst nightmare. For fifteen-year-old Gemma, it's already too late. Her body was found in the nave of the parish church in Ealing.

DI Mark Tartaglia spends a night in a west London hotel with a woman he has just met. When he is called out to the same hotel the next morning to investigate a murder, he realises it must have taken place while he was there. If things weren't already complicated enough, the investigation takes a new and horrifying turn when he recognises the young female victim. Still reeling from the shock, he learns that another case he has been investigating - the body of a homeless man found in a burnt-out car - is also not what it seems. Tests reveal that the corpse has been assembled from the body parts of four different people. Under mounting pressure from the media and unsure where his loyalties lie, Tartaglia must solve this new macabre puzzle before the Jigsaw Killer strikes again.
