Summary:
June 1916. When a young woman is murdered in a darkened cinema, DI Harvey Marmion and his partner Sergeant Joe Keedy find themselves faced with a killer with no qualms about slaying his victims in public, or in displaying them where they will be easily found. And in the darkness provided by the blackouts, a murderer can strike with seeming impunity. When another body is discovered, bearing a striking resemblance to the first, panic begins to grip the city. For Marmion, the pressures of the investigation are further complicated when his daughter Alice, a member of the nascent Women's Police Service, is drawn into the case. As his superiors clamour for an arrest, can Marmion force the killer into the light?

Summary

In June 1916, a young woman named Charlotte Reid is found murdered in a cinema. Harvey Marmion and Joe Keedy are assigned the task of finding the killer who so elusively fled in the dark.
Before long, two more victims, of striking similarity but differing backgrounds, are found dead around the city. Meanwhile, miles from home, Marmion's son Paul prepares for life on the front line as he marches towards the Battle of the Somme. Suffering a vicious blow in No Man's Land, Paul is left blinded for the rest of his life. Marmion must come to terms with the permanent darkness of his son's life, while continuing to search for the brutal killer who only strikes in the dark.
