Synopsis

Jubilee Street - the haunt of addicts and vagrants is a part of town to avoid at all costs, especially when it becomes the stalking ground of a brutal and ruthless murderer. A drunken down and out is the first casualty, mutilated and burned alive but his grisly death raises even more problems for the investigating officers, Sergeants Trevor Joseph and Peter Collins. They discover that their victim died two years earlier. So who is the dead man? And what was the motive for the bizarre crime? While they seek a killer in the dark urban underworld, the tally of corpses grows and the only certainty is that they can trust no man's face as his own. He froze. His mouth opened but uttered no sound. The corpse of the young man was sitting bolt upright, the sheet draped in folds around its waist. The torso was white, finely muscled, the porcelain quality of the skin gleaming in glaring contrast to the purple and blue pulp where the face had been. The attendant continued to gaze, mesmerized. One word echoed through his mind as the scream finally tore from deep inside his throat. Flayed!
