A serial killer is on the loose in a remote area of the Norfolk coast. Overshadowing the bleak landscape and the lives of the local community is the Larksoken nuclear power station, run by the charismatic Alex Mair.

Then a death occurs that makes it chillingly apparent that the mass murderer isn't the only killer at work in Larksoken.

When Commander Adam Dalgliesh becomes involved in the hunt for the murderer, he finds himself caught up in the passions and dangerous secrets of the headland community.
