Detective Somerset has just seven more days before he retires. He is looking forward to leaving the city and living peacefully away from the city. Maybe he will meet someone and have children. Maybe, at forty-five, he is not too old to become a father. After twenty-three years as a homicide detective in the city, he has seen enough crime. He does not want to see any more senseless murders. He only wants to get through these last seven days as easily as possible. But with about sixty homicides a month in this city, he is not going to have a very easy week. At the next murder scene, he meets Detective David Mills, a younger man who is new to the city. He has left his job in a small town because he wants to do work that he thinks matters more. Somerset thinks that he is a fool for coming to the city. The next morning, a very fat man is found dead in his kitchen. Then Eli Gould, the city’s top criminal defense lawyer is killed. There are clues left by the murderer. Is this the work of a serial killer? What do the clues mean? it does not take Somerset long to understand. This killer plans to murder seven people - one for each of the Seven Deadly Sins. Can they find him and stop him before he murders again?
