Beautiful. Twisted. Destined to die. 


Detective Tom Fabian's past is catching up with him. It has been three years since his most high profile case - when he put infamous serial killer Christopher Wisher behind bars forever. But when Wisher summons a reluctant Fabian to his prison cell to hand over a diary, he realises that Wisher's twisted games are far from over.

Shortly after Fabian's visit, the police find a woman's body bearing Wisher's signature, a dead songbird. But the police never released this detail to the who has Wisher been communicating with?

Fabian is desperate to find the killer before another innocent life is taken. But as more bodies turn up, Fabian begins to realise that Wisher may have handed him the clues in the diary. Are they a record of the past or a prediction of the future?
