October 1981 DI Mick Fletcher and DS Irene Garner are once again on the track of the 'Snow White Killer' - a woman who kills 'wicked stepmothers'. There have been no victims for over a year, but now two in quick succession. Except the second body maybe isn't one of hers. Is it a copycat killer instead? Colin Lockwood returns to the down-at-heel seaside town where he was born and grew up: an idyllic childhood memory, which is about to be shattered by the revelations which will shock and horrify the whole community. One wedding leads to lot of funerals as the secrets of a bunch of sixties teenagers are uncovered by a series of horrific murders. A killer desperately trying to prevent the truth from coming to light. A truth which is preserved in black and white images of unimaginable sexual depravity.
