A VIGILANTE KILLER IS PLAYING JUDGE, JURY AND EXECUTIONER IN THE CITY OF LIVERPOOL.
Detective Inspector Carter returns from leave to find that he has been promoted to the rank of Detective Chief Inspector. All as a result of his efforts in ‘The Davenport enquiry’ as featured in ‘Carter’s Story’
Carter and his team are called in to deal with a double suicide. The bodies of two women have been found hanging from a beam in their garage. Carter finds that the victims may be keeping secrets.
Carter’s team quickly find a link between the two suicide victims, and the author of an anonymous letter sent to the police. He claims that the women, himself, and other victims had suffered mistreatment by Priests, teachers whilst pupils at St Vincent’s Roman Catholic school.
The author stated due to the lack of progress made by the police that he himself will bring the culprits to book. They were collectively responsible for the atrocities carried out in ‘The Evil Room’
Each victim will have a note on or about their body, fully explaining their complicity in the shocking affair. He explains that he cannot comment on what condition they will be found in.
A chance conversation overheard whilst travelling on a bus gives the vigilant a name from the past, the caretaker of the school. By torturing his victim he gains the name of his next victim.
Carter and the team quickly realise they are dealing with a serial killer, and no evidential trail to follow. The case gathers speed they quickly realise that the body count is raising.
