A serial rapist is working through a series of attacks. He isn't shy to make clear his hatred of women and taunting of the police. He leaves his calling card, a witch's hat at the houses he breaks into, each numbered from a pack of six. The media interest in the cases is intense, and Detective Chief Inspector Adam Breen again turns to his friend, TV crime reporter Dan Groves to help him handle it. Dan does - at the price of some great scoops and an involvement in the case that eventually leads to him to effectively talk to the rapist, using the stories he broadcasts to lure him into a trap, and finally discover the extraordinary solution to the riddle. A dying artist creates a series of ten paintings - The Death Pictures - which contain a mysterious riddle, leading the way to a unique and highly valuable prize. Thousands attempt to solve it. But before the answer can be revealed, the painter is murdered. The detectives face baffling questions. Why kill the artist when he would die naturally in just a few weeks time? What to make of the attempted break-in at his house just before his death? Could it be connected with the rapes, all of which have been carried out in the area around his home?
