A serial killer with all the time in the world...From a stunning new voice in crime fiction.

Stephen Killigan has been cold since the day he arrived in Cambridge. Seven hundred years of history staining the stones of the university have given him a chill he can't shake. Then he stumbles across the body of a missing beauty queen - a body which disappears before the police arrive...

Unwittingly, Killigan has entered the sinister world of Jackamore Grass on a trail that reaches back to seventeenth-century Cambridge. It's a world of cadavers, philosophers and scholars of deadly beauty, a world where a person's corpse can be found before they even go missing, of a city and a person that hold far too many secrets written in blood.
