Storyline

Leo Dalton investigates the death of a young boy whose body is found in the river. He was badly abused and his hands and feet were severed. The child is found to have been HIV positive and the pathologists determine that he may have been the victim of a ritual killing., perhaps as part of an exorcism that went too far. When the skeletal remains of another child are found, Leo believes the police have focused their investigation on the wrong man. Nikki Alexander investigates the apparent suicide of Father Anthony Reid who appears to have jumped from his apartment window on the grounds of a well-known Catholic school. He had colon cancer but those who knew him question that he would take his own life. Harry Cunningham looks into the case of Austin Chambers who is found floating in his swimming pool with an obvious ligature mark on his throat. Written by garykmcd

Ritual or Profit?
21 March 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

The mutilated and dismembered body of a child is discovered. He is probably about six years old and seems to be from an African country. Investigation finds that in some countries, there are ritual killings where body parts of young boys are used for medicinal purposes (and other things beyond that). Soon, a second body is found and a pattern is developed. Nikki is investigating the apparent suicide of a priest, who supposedly leaped from the top of a church.
