Let sleeping ghosts lie
A killer is stalking pretty young women is London's Second City, and now yet another victim is discovered in the Spinnergate district. Chief Commander John Coffin puts his men to work on a case that has just turned personal. Photos of a pedophile doing his worst have been sent to Coffin's wife, actress Stella Pinero, and there is evidence that both sets of horrific crimes are linked.
Coffin, who knows the trick to good police work is to stay ahead of the game, has yet to fathom the rules to this one, but suspects the worst. When the "body" of a female mannequin is placed inside Coffin's home he understands his wife's tormentor has sent them both a deadly message. As the violence escalates and Stella herself is kidnapped — and, curiously, allowed to escape — the motive and madness become inextricably bound to the chilling secrets buried beneath Stella's theater and to a familiar face with a taste for death. . .and a hearty appetite for murder.

Synopsis:

A killer is stalking pretty young women in London's Second City, and Chief Commander John Coffin becomes personally involved when his wife, Stella, is kidnapped.
