When a woman is viciously murdered outside of the premiere of notorious Austrian director Konrad Waechter's new film in a manner that echoes the content of the film itself, Silas Quinn begins his investigation with those in attendance.

April, 1914. Against his better judgement, Detective Inspector Silas Quinn is attending the premiere of the new motion picture by notorious Austrian film-maker Konrad Waechter. But the glamorous event is interrupted by the piercing screams of a young woman in the street outside. She has been viciously mutilated in a horrific attack which eerily echoes a macabre act of violence in Waechter's film.

As he questions those who attended the premiere, Quinn's jaundiced view of the fledgling film industry as a business based on illusion and pretence, where no one is what they seem, appears to be justified. But when members of London's Establishment start to receive bizarre hand-delivered parcels containing the strangest of contents, the investigation takes a disturbing twist.

April, 1914. The premiere of notorious Austrian director Konrad Waechter's new film is interrupted by the screams of a woman in the street outside. She has been viciously mutilated in a horrific act of violence which eerily echoes a macabre act of violence in Waechter's film. DI Silas Quinn and his team investigate.
