Her first love confessed to five murders. But the truth was so much worse.
Dublin’s notorious Canal Killer, Will Hurley, is ten years into his life sentence when the body of a young woman is fished out of the Grand Canal.

He claims he has the information the police need, but will only give it to one person – the girl he was dating when he committed his horrific crimes.
