DCI Peter Boyd's new "Cold Case" unit believes that the killer of a young girl found in a landfill site is the man they're looking for in a similar case five years earlier. Tensions arise between the two teams investigating the two crimes, conflicts within the unit, and a killer who seems to delight in taunting the police, especially Boyd. Written by duke1029@aol.com
