       Additional Information  
      Chief Inspector Frank Jacobson is back from holiday and starting to wish he'd stayed away permanently. First, the notorious rapist known as the "Crowby Crawler" is---legally---back on the streets, complete with a media circus and a mob of baying vigilantes. And second, bored, adulturous Jenny Mortimer lies dead in her driveway and her jealous, domineering husband Gus hasn't a shred of an alibi. Even when Detective Sergeant Ian Kerr casts doubt on the simplicity of the case, Jacobson isn't overly concened. If Gus hasn't done it, Jacobson has his eye on another suspect: Jenny's youthful, bohemian lover, Kevin Holland.

    As the summer heatwave continues and Jacobson 's stress levels soar, things that he really could do without start to happen. Things like the Crawler going missing, and Gus Mortimer turning up as dead as his wife.
