It's not as easy being a Serial Killer these days!

What if a serial killer from the seventies saw a programme on late-night TV that exclaimed that the perpetrator of these unsolved crimes was, by now, dead or infirm? Would it make the killer angry? Would it make him want to prove that assertion incorrect?

John Turner has recently retired from the building trade. He’s sixty, lives in a small house in rural Kent with his wife, Treena. Like many people just retired, he’s scratching around for something to do. Unlike most people, however, John used to be a serial killer.

When a documentary about his alter-ego is aired on BBC4, and the presenter suggests he wouldn’t be able to do what he did back then, due to advancements in forensic science, something deep inside him threatens to awake.

“He’s done in fifty pages what Lionel Shriver did in — what was it? — seven hundred pages?” — a reviewer.

“Some things never change. Like the polyethylene sheets you can buy from the hardware store for decorating jobs : they’ve always been fantastic at isolating a victim from personal belongings, such as car boots.” - John Turner.
