Scott Freeman, a widower with two teenaged girls, is battered to death on a tow path. Masquerading as a young girl on the Internet he had been hunting down paedophiles, hopefully catching the man who , nine years earlier, raped his younger daughter Rose whilst she was in Brighton for a dance contest run by Edward and Tamsin Shaffer. Scott's computer shows that he met Dr Philip Cleaving on the tow path but Cleaving insists he left Scott alive. Cleaving ultimately admits his part in Rose's rape but Edward Shaffer was also placed at the scene, though he denies involvement. A blood-stained towel in the Shaffers' garbage appears to link him to Scott's murder but then Edward is also killed.
