Two schoolboys are sliced as they walk home from school, witnesses say that the attackers were slim and dressed in grey hoodies with hoods up, white shorts, trainers and white gloves and most think that they were young women or girls.

They call themselves the Enigmas because they are a mystery to the police, to County Major Crimes, to Andy North, to Ellie Tonbridge and the other Detectives of the Unit.
