The crimes begin in a bizarre fashion. First, a busload of tipsy sightseers, braving London’s terror tour, disappears on the notorious “Murder Street”. Next, a child’s stuffed toy is kidnapped, brutalised and buried. For Scotland Yard Inspector John Coffin, things go from odd to alarming when the tour bus is found, all the passengers alive except for one – an armchair crime enthusiast who has been murdered. Worse, the young son of a visiting American actress disappears in the wake of a series of child abductions. But nothing is as it seems and Coffin fears that Murder Street may continue to live up to its bloody history.
