In a spectacular storm, homicide cop Gregory Samsa's car skids across a flooded field and overturns. Gregory Samsa survives. His passenger doesn't. But instead of reporting the accident, in a frenzied panic Samsa drags his passenger to a lonely place and buries her. He has his reputation to think about, his career, his daughter.

Cunning, vicious and predatory, Boyle is on the trail of Almond's killer - it's payback time - and that trail is leading him to the very cop investigating her more
