Crime / Mystery

Snapshot Synopsis

A dead prostitute, a photograph, a message. This is Detective Inspector Longman's first case after transferring to Leicester CID from London, where he had been badly injured during a violent arrest. The first message was bad enough but when a second one is delivered, along with another photograph, it becomes apparent that the quieter pace of life he was expecting will have to wait. A serial killer is out there - abducting, raping and killing young women, then leaving their near-naked bodies to be discovered. When Longman realises who the killer intends his final victim to be, he becomes embroiled in a race against the clock. The prize for success: a woman's life.
