A young woman is found murdered on the grounds of a rural golf course, leaving Detective Inspector Angus Henderson of Sussex Police with no discernible clues. If that’s not enough, he has other problems to contend with when his girlfriend is injured in a car crash and a local gangster takes an interest in the case and starts beating up suspects. A breakthrough is made when it is discovered that the victim was a model on an adult website. This brings the owners of the website under suspicion, not only because of the business they run, but two of them are also lecturers at the university the victim attended. It’s a difficult case for the DI but it might be his last when his life is threatened by two animals; but only one of them is human.
