When a man is found tucked up in bed with his throat sliced open two days after Christmas, DS Jason Smith and his team are baffled. It appears he has been drugged, killed and carefully wrapped up in a duvet. The only evidence Smith finds are some strands of hair belonging to a woman. One month later, another man is killed in exactly the same manner but there appears to be no link whatsoever to the two men apart from the fact that they were both single, lonely and middle aged. In the midst of the worst winter in years, Smith and his team quickly run out of ideas and tensions between the detectives rise. Frustration leads to conflicts both at work and in their personal lives. The only clue the team have is the murders were carried out under the glow of the full moon. Just when Smith feels like he has reached the end of his tether and his own sanity is declining, help comes from an unexpected source; a man who knew this woman when she was a young girl in the mountains of Northern Romania. He sheds light on the reasons these men had to die. Smith finds out who this woman used to be but who she is now is still a mystery. Haunted by lucid dreams and terrifying double awakenings, Smith stumbles upon something that will send him on a hunt for the most baffling murderer the people of York has even seen. With time quickly running out before the next full moon and the safety of one of his closest colleagues entering the equation, Smith finally closes in on the most terrifying murderer he has ever come across.

The sleuth scientist is quietly famous in forensic circles for unraveling the most daunting technical puzzles, but this case is bewildering. Two people are already dead. The third victim, a priest, is dying by inches in an Atlanta hospital, and the cause is a complete mystery to doctors and police detectives alike.

Despite that bizarre transformation, Keane knows that he's not chasing something supernatural. The killer is a man-twisted by anger and a lust for vengeance-but still very much human. As the death toll mounts, the story races from Atlanta to London's Hyde Park to the edge of Siberia and a place now home to an international nuclear black market. For all of his perception and skill, Keane is always one step behind. Time is running out. The killer is making his final preparations to submerge an entire city in a cloud of death.

Dick as an innovator in science fiction while breaking the barrier between science fiction and the serious novel of ideas.
