Summary
"A series of brutal murders intersect with a detective's troubled past in an unnamed British city. When Detective Andy Hicks examines the faceless corpse of Vicki Gibson, he clings to his philosophy that every murder has an explanation, even something as senseless as beating a young woman to death with a hammer. The similar murder of a homeless man further tests Hicks' belief and distances him from his pregnant wife, Rachel. She knows he doesn't want their baby, but Hicks can't tell her why. After more bludgeoned bodies appear, a pattern emerges that includes isolated locations, easy prey and a killer dressed in black who sends a letter to Hicks, taunting him that even he won't be able to crack the code the killer has generated. Worse still is evidence of a murder in progress that Hicks is helpless to prevent. When the killer attacks someone from one of Hicks' earliest cases, the detective is forced to confront his most painful memories as he frantically studies the murderous pattern for the one element that doesn't fit."--Kirkus Reviews

Summary
For DI Andrew Hicks, solving a murder is logical: your first suspicions are usually right. So when the brutally beaten body of a young woman is found, his attention focuses closely on the ex-boyfriend. But then more bodies start appearing, all beaten beyond recognition, and there is no connection between any of the victims. Because this is a new type of killer, one who revels in chaos. To survive, Hicks must face not only a serial killer with no discernable motive, but the hidden darkness of his own past.
