It is 1921 and a terrible discovery has been made at a manor
house in Surrey - the bloodied bodies of Colonel Fletcher, his wife
and two of their staff. The victims have all been stabbed and the
lack of disturbance in the house suggests that the attack was one
of terrifying speed.
The Surrey police force seem ready to put the murders town to
robbery with violence, but Detective Inspector Madden from Scotland
Yard sees things slightly differently. For he has experienced the
horrors of World War I and has seen madness at first hand. And he
is certain this crime has been perpetrated by a psychopath who will
strike again...and soon.
