GENRE: MYSTERY / DRAMA
DURATION: TO BE DETERMINED
Spring hits the community of Mainland in the Shetland Islands. When the snow starts to melt a strangely mutilated corpse is found. The victim is Megan Miller, a young girl who disappeared last winter. At first it was thought that she had sailed off on a fishing boat with a sailor she had a crush on.
The news spreads like lightning, bringing terror to the little town, something that is not taken lightly by the board of fishermen nor the mayor, especially coming into the fishing season, Mainland’s main activity.

Agent Lewis, a rather indiscreet police officer who has a fancy for Rebecca, reveals details to her about how they found Megan’s body. Anyway, there are never any secrets on the island…
Rebecca, piqued by curiosity and alone in her bookstore, investigates Megan’s death and comes to a terrible conclusion: the murderer’s modus operandi is exactly as described by her great-grandfather, Arthur Conan Doyle, in an old book which she inherited. The killer seems to have read the book, something that is impossible as the one secret copy belongs to the family and has never been edited.
It becomes personal for Rebecca when a second body is found, a prostitute that appears in the same circumstances and exactly as detailed in another chapter of the old book.
Doyle has to convince Detective Green that there is a serial killer following the murders to a T as written decades ago by her illustrious great-grandfather. They’ll have to think like him to uncover the identity of the murderer.
