Book description


The body of a woman with her throat ripped out is found on Saddleworth Moor, near Manchester. She is discovered in an area where several sightings of a large black cat have recently been made.


When analysis shows that hairs caught under the victim's nails are those of a panther, it’s assumed the animal has killed its first human prey.
Then a man Manchester Detective, Jon Spicer is investigating as part of an entirely different case is murdered in exactly the same way. Only this time the body is found in a secluded car park far closer to the city centre.
