Assistant Chief Constable of the Manchester Police, Peter Hunter, is called in to oversee the West Yorkshire Police's Ripper investigation and, with the help of John Nolan and Helen Marshall, both detectives from Greater Manchester Police, they decide to go back and look at the crime reports from the Ripper's victims to see what they could have missed.moreless
