Storyline

When a human skull is unearthed at a construction site, DS Luke Stone begins to believe he has found the remains of a serial killer. The only problem is that the case was closed by the veteran copper in charge of that case, when the accused hung himself while in remand. Stone and Alembic continue their investigation but, given the general penchant to not re-open old cases or challenge the work of veteran policeman, focus more narrowly on identifying the skull. What they find is a complex case of stolen identity and revenge that ends in tragedy for many of the parties concerned and leads straight back to the question of just who was the serial killer.
