Storyline

Red is irate to find that Duncan Warren, desperate for money, has sold the story of the murder hunt to a journalist and has him removed from the case. Stephen Hedges tells Red that the five victims had jobs as well as names matching the disciples but Red is unable to prevent further murders, even though he is now aware that each victim will be killed on their namesake's saints day. Ultimately eleven men are slain, the one surviving namesake being Judas. Red discovers not only that the killer is a madman who believes he is the Messiah and immortal but that this is a person known to Red, who sees him as Judas - the last victim. In ending the reign of terror Red , helped by Susan, must fight for his life in a kill-or-be-killed confrontation with a lunatic who suffers an appropriate end. Written by don @ minifie-1
