Continuing the narrative begun with Nineteen Seventy-Four and Nineteen Seventy-Seven , this electrifying third installment of David Peace's Red Riding Quartet demonstrates a skill that goes above and beyond the limits of the genre.

While Yorkshire is terrorized by the Ripper, the corrupt police continue to prosper. To give the case some new life, Peter Hunter, a "clean" cop from nearby Manchester, is brought in to offer a fresh perspective. As he goes about setting up a new case under the radar, he suffers the same fate as those who previously attempted to get in the way of the Ripper: his house is burned down, his wife threatened. But he soldiers on. And as he comes face to face with unthinkable evil, Hunter struggles to maintain his reputation, his sanity, and his life.
