Description

SERIAL opens with a haunting first person narrative. A middle-aged male describes picking up a lone girl hitchiker. Within pages however, her voice disappears from the scene and the man is alone once again...Days later, the body of a man is discovered and within his pockets lies the typed sheets of that first narrative. The Gardai follow the text closely and deduce that the hitchiker must have been murdered as well. They swiftly find her mutilated body. But this is only the beginning of the mystery. The police are convinced that the two murders are by the same killer. But the first seems to have been committed by a man, the second by a woman...Who is the hunter and who is the victim? The female detective, Kristina Galetti, has her thoughts, but in the end the decision might come down to who best knows the nature of the human soul. As the investigation intensifies and Galetti comes under increasing public and political pressure, the split between her and her recalcitrant colleague threatens to allow this vicious, pathological killer to walk free...show more
