Thriller, ve kterém se odsouzený mladý sériový vrah chce ještě k něčemu přiznat. Mluvit však bude pouze se svou expřítelkyní, která se ale snaží za svou minulostí zavřít pevně dveře.
Her first love confessed to five murders. But the truth was so much worse. Dublin's notorious Canal Killer, Will Hurley, is ten years into his life sentence when the body of a young woman is fished out of the Grand Canal. Though detectives suspect they are dealing with a copycat, they turn to Will for help. He claims he has the information the police need, but will only give it to one person - the girl he was dating when he committed his horrific crimes. Alison Smith has spent the last decade abroad, putting her shattered life in Ireland far behind her. But when she gets a request from Dublin imploring her to help prevent another senseless murder, she is pulled back to face the past - and the man - she's worked so hard to forget.
