THE DEVIL'S BEAUTY
Detective Inspector Carter returns to work after the brutal death of his wife at the hands of Adrian Ashley-Thornhill only to find that a body of a young girl has been found in the same area that his wife was murdered. Part of the ritual performed on the corpse would indicate an act of sacrifice through Devil worship.
Three days later another body is found. This time it is the daughter of Plymouth drug baron Jimmy Whiteford. Thinking that it could be something to do with a rival gang, the gangster makes it known on the TV and Press appeals that he will stop at nothing to find the culprit and that they will get what they deserve.
As the Police now question their own investigation, forensics indicate through DNA that there are two killers. DC Johnson has two suspects in mind whilst DI Carter has to stop a potential gang war and prevent further acts of ritual Satanism at the same time. He has to find the killers before Jimmy Whiteford does.
