Links View: After the death of his aunt, Alex Palmer finds himself to be the main beneficiary of her estate – much to the displeasure of his cousin, Carson. But one of the properties left to Alex in the will is being used illegally by sisters, Anna and Lucy Campbell and Alex makes more new enemies as he takes steps to evict them.
While Alex finds himself getting close to Charlie Townsend – a good-looking girl who works in one of Cromer’s hotels – Carson Palmer is murdered and his older sister, Michelle White, extracts revenge. Shortly after, another stranger steps into Alex’s life in the form of Russell Smith, a London lawyer who’s running from the mob.
Meanwhile, teenage girls in the town are being murdered and Detective Inspector Tony Andrews is under pressure to find the killer. Unfortunately, he doesn’t even know what the motive may be. Suspicion falls on Alex, but Russell’s legal knowledge keeps DI Andrews at bay… for the moment. Yet DI Andrews has his own dark secrets that are possibly holding back the enquiry.

After a while in the dark, wrapped up in her own thoughts, Katie checked her phone, spotting an unopened message. Maybe Phil wanted to apologise. But did she even want to see him again? So engrossed in her own anxiety was she, that Katie only sensed there was somebody nearby at the last second. She heard a noise that distracted her from her phone. The sound came from behind her, almost as if someone was lunging at her. Before she could turn, something happened. Something awful. Something serious. She was too late to do anything about the gloved hands that grabbed her head and her throat.
“Don’t move, Katie Davidson. There are things you need to know.”
Katie tried to turn, but the grip became stronger and the fingers dug into her neck. “Who are you?” she croaked.
“That doesn’t matter. All that matters is that you are such a lovely young woman, but so easily tempted. Your soul deserves to rest in peace.”
Katie tried to scream, but all that came out was a strangled cry. An overdose of adrenaline pumped through her body, giving her the shakes and making her tongue run ahead of her. “Please, please, I’m sorry. Whatever I did, I’m sorry.” “Oh, it’s too late for regrets,” the voice from behind her said. “What’s done is done. I’ve been watching you in the car with that young man. Despite confessing in the church just four days ago, you’re at it again, Katie. God only forgives you if you are truly sorry. But you are not sorry at all, are you? You wear the badge of innocence by your membership to the Chastity Club, but your hypocrisy knows no bounds. You ask God for forgiveness then go straight out and sin again.”
Katie grabbed the hand that was gripping her throat, but she couldn’t move it. Panic rushed in through every pore.
Whoever was holding her released her head, but the grip on her throat stayed firm. “Be calm now, and let us pray,” the attacker said. “Dear God, accept this child into Heaven. Let her sit next to You, in Your Kingdom. Welcome her with open arms so she can join You and forever rest in peace. Forgive all of her sins for she has already confessed to them. Cleanse and bless her soul and grant her direct passage to Your Kingdom.”
