As further victims emerge, and with his team in disarray, Chandler is forced to take desperate measures.
A disembowelled body is discovered in a sewer. The team must establish whether a killer is at large, or if feral swine have returned to London's sewers. Chandler has to pull the detectives together after an abysmal team-building exercise.
The emergence of further flayed victims points to a serial killer with an unhealthy interest in his victims' skin. Despite the clues left behind, the detectives seem no closer to finding their man. Buchan's researches prove fruitful, but may place him in grave danger.
A flayed human face is discovered in a Whitechapel art gallery. A second murder follows quickly, the killer leaving coded messages at each crime scene. Some Russian prison tattoos indicate a link to organised crime. The team is unsettled by mysterious footsteps and the flickering of lights within the station.

The investigation runs into difficulty when one victim's historic involvement in espionage attracts the attention of the security services.moreless
