Tom Thorne seems to have a nose for sniffing out wrong-doing but being back in uniform means that life isn’t what it was. As far as the deaths go no one wants to listen to his concerns when there’s a spate of elderly suicide victims, so he’s forced to go it alone and it goes without saying that he can’t trust anyone.

With a killer on the loose, Thorne decides to risk the lives of the next targets knowing it’s not going to be easy. But he doesn’t do easy and he’s going to need every ounce of cunning to see it through.
