Summary
Jock Lewis was supposed to have died in a terrible train crash at Paddington. Minty, his girlfriend, received a letter from Great Western telling her so. But the police haven't been in touch and Jock has borrowed all her savings. Zillah also got a letter, informing her of her husband's death. Something about it struck her as suspicious, but she puts away her doubts for a new marriage of convenience. Fiona met Jeff before the August crash. Although he always needed money, she was devoted to him--and can't understand why he has suddenly disappeared. How are the lives of these three women connected, and how do they figure into a series of vicious stabbing deaths that have terrified the citizens of London?
Summary
The fates of four people--a woman who is being visited by her late boyfriend's ghost, a gay MP who marries to prevent being outed, a radio talk-show host with an eating disorder, and a black police sergeant--intertwine as a serial killer stalks the streets of London
