Only two days before the Headhunter takes another victim... Bristol, England. A killer is stalking the city streets, targeting beautiful young women, kidnapping them and then torturing them, before finally disposing of their decapitated corpses. He holds them for seven days, no more, no less, and the only clue the killer leaves is a fresh tattoo on their bodies. The police can't find him. In desperation, Detective Sean Bocksham and Dr Robin Sails enlist the help of Sutton Mills. Because for them it has become personal: the Headhunter's latest victim is Robin's sister, and Sean's cousin. Tall, dark and handsome, Sutton Mills is not a detective, a private eye, or a vigilante. When the police can do no more, when there is no one else to turn to, then people go to Sutton. He is a lover of puzzles and a diligent student of Art; a man living off the grid; a man with an uncanny ability to find things. Calling on all his resources, Sutton must chase this cunning and intelligent psychopath through the streets of Bristol and find Andrea…before her time runs out.
