The inseparable Byker Chapter: six boys, one girl, growing up together in the back streets of Newcastle.
Now memories are all that Richard Eden has left, and one treasured photograph. But suddenly, inexplicably, the images of his friends start to fade, and as they vanish, so his friends are found dead and mutilated.
Something is stalking the Chapter, picking them off one by one, something connected with their past, and with the girl they used to know.
