Critically acclaimed, award-winning British-born writer Peter Robinson delivers a haunting psychological thriller in The First Cut. This chilling tale of a woman's search for a serial killer was inspired by the true crimes of the Yorkshire Ripper.
University student Kirsten is the first victim of a slasher preying on coeds in northern England. She is also unique in that she survived the brutal attack, although the scars she carries -- physical and emotional -- have changed her forever from the carefree girl she once was. The retribution Kirsten desperately desires comes unexpectedly, in the form of Martha Browne, a visitor to the historic seaside town of Whitby on the Yorkshire coast and a woman with a very specific agenda of her own.
As this chilling tale unfolds, the body count rises…and the cost of justice climbs to terrifying heights. Originally published under the title Caedmon's Song, this timeless tale of vengeance was released in Canada during the 1990s and in Great Britain in 2003. Now it makes its distinguished debut in the United States. Sue Stone
