Review

Celebrity forensic psychologist Blake Albrighton (Don Gilet), having roared up to Scotland in his fancy sports car, is right at the thick of the murder investigation team. He interviews suspects at the police station and in their own homes. Odd, as that’s not his job at all. “The killer dances ahead of us, leading us to his story,” Albrighton tells an enthralled group of detectives.

As this confusing murder mystery gets even foggier – why are there so many characters? Who are all these people? Why does DCI Lauren Quigley never say hello or goodbye whenever she talks to anyone? – animal carcasses and bits of humans keep turning up in the pretty lochside town of Lochnefoy.

Summary

A human heart is discovered on the shores of the Loch, and forensic psychologist Blake Albrighton is brought in to join the investigating team. He quickly forms a disturbing theory about the motive behind the seemingly inexplicable murders, but Chief Inspector Frank Smilie is quick to dismiss his ideas. However, if the new arrival is correct, the once peaceful Highland community could be set to endure far more deaths, as a serial killer prowls the area. Crime drama, starring Laura Fraser, John Sessions and Don Gilet.
