First edition. Fine in fine dust jacket. Is the Doll Strangler back? Singmass Close has a sinister past. Supposedly haunted by the ghosts of children, in the 50s it was the hunting ground of the Doll Strangler, a ruthless killer who was never brought to justice. Now DI Joe Plantagenet wonders whether a copycat killer is at work when the strangled body of teenager Natalie Parkes is found in the same close with a mutilated doll lying by her side. With the recent disappearance of a young female model and an escaped convict at large, this new, horrible murder stretches Joe's team to their limit. As the bodies start mounting up, Joe's questioning brings him closer to the real strangler.
