DCI John Luther is a near-genius murder detective whose brilliant mind can't always save him from the dangerous violence of his passions.
Detective John Luther is back from leave following the traumatic arrest of a serial killer. His first case is investigating the murder of the parents of former child genius, Alice Morgan. He quickly deduces that Alice is responsible for the deaths, but the seemingly perfect crime leaves no evidence with which to convict her.
Luther is called to the shooting of two uniformed police officers. The murders are cold blooded but appear motiveless, until Luther realizes that the killer is a soldier who seems to be targeting anyone wearing a police uniform.
A young mother has been abducted. Luther realizes it's the work of Lucien Burgess, a collector and writer of the occult who was suspected in the murder of another woman 10 years prior, but never charged.
