A notice announcing that Harry Devlin died suddenly on Midsummer's Eve arrives at the office of his law firm one June day. His partner Jim Crusoe treats the message as a joke, but Harry isn't so sure-especially as Midsummer's Eve is less than a week away. From that moment on, his world starts to fall apart. Who is his unknown enemy?
Meanwhile, young women are being murdered in Harry's home city of Liverpool. When a friend who has asked to meet him becomes the latest victim, Harry is dragged into the investigation and becomes a suspect.
