Carmichael is summoned to his local church by the vicar, who reports a man who has just come into his church with blood on his hands and is claiming to have just murdered someone. By the time Carmichael arrives the man has disappeared, with few signs to identify who he was, where he came from and where he went…
When, the next day, a body is found in the boot of a Bentley Car hired from a known petty criminal, by a relatively unknown actor, Carmichael and his team quickly realise the events are related.
As the body count rises the links between the deaths are all too evident, but despite this Carmichael and his team remain confounded as to who is behind the murders and what motive they have for taking so many lives.
