Before night falls, someone will die...
A young Czech girl, missing for eight days, is found in a deserted playground. Starving and terrified, she may be alive but the horrors she's survived have left her mute.
DCI Eve Clay is on her way to try and interview the girl, when another case is called in. Two Polish migrant workers have been found dead in their burnt out flat. But this is no normal house fire. The men's bodies had been doused in petrol.
Then Clay uncovers a sinister message at the scene: killing time is here, embrace it. It's clear this is only the beginning, but how long does Eve have before another life is taken?
