DCI Jack Lambert is no stranger to inner demons, having struggled with his own since the admission about his sexuality.
When two bodies are discovered in an open grave, Lambert must put his personal worries aside and work the case. But when the body of a local thug shows up on the banks of the River Tyne, the DCI’s criminal past comes back to haunt him.
Meanwhile, a local celebrity singer claims that she is being stalked. Could there be a link to the killings? As the bodies start to pile up, Lambert realises the motive lies in the past and that the killer is taunting them. The clock is ticking. Can he catch the murderer, or will one of their own end up in an open grave?
