Chief Constable Frank Shapiro and Inspector Liz Graham return in their second mystery, which finds Liz seeking a serial killer at the same time that a charismatic revivalist minister is turning the town, and Liz's emotions, upside-down.

Blackwell North Amer
No one seems to care too much about a sixteen-year-old prostitute known as Charisma - until she is found floating by the docks with her throat slashed. Inspector Liz Graham, new to Castlemere and interrupted from unpacking to lead the investigation, faces a distressing investigation into Charisma's hard life and hideous death.
Only yards from the place where Charisma's body is discovered, workmen have been raising a tent to house traveling evangelist Michael Davey's week-long revival meeting. Questioning the crew uncovers nothing, until Sergeant Cal Donovan spots a face from his childhood, a known IRA heavy who is officially dead.... Before he has time to decipher this unlikely clue, another girl turns up dead.
Liz tackles the dynamic reverend himself, who has become an overnight sensation in Castlemere. Against her better judgment, she is fascinated by him. But he couldn't possibly have had anything to do with the deaths of these young girls, could he? Could he?
