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.

When a young woman's body is found in the Grand Canal, Garda detectives visit convicted serial killer Will Hurley to see if he can assist them in solving what looks like a copycat killing. Instead, Will tells them he has something new to confess-but there's only one person he's prepared to confess it to. Reluctantly, ex-girlfriend Alison returns to the city she hasn't set foot in for more than a decade to face the man who murdered the woman she was supposed to become.
The truth was, I'd never stopped loving Will. I'd just accepted that the Will I'd known and loved was dead. Ten years later, I was still trying to come to terms with the fact that he'd never really existed in the first place.
