From the very first page of As the Sun Turns Black, it is clear that something is very rotten in the city of Manchester.

Two young girls are missing – then one is found dead, covered in blood and swan-feathers. The murdered child turns out to be the daughter of Matt Spears’ friend, Eddie, who appeals to him to find the killer.
