The last person you want to suspect. The last person you want to trust. Near the suburban home of housewife Anne Marsh and her young family, a series of savage sexual murders are being investigated by the police. The killer is known only to them as 'The Hawk', owing to his trade mark of gouging out the eyes of his victims bodies. Gradually, certain things begin to trouble Anne about her husband's behavior - his frequent business trips, a missing hammer, a casual remark - could her Stephen be the killer? Her suspicions turn to cold fear when ore and more occurences seem to link her husband to the murders, but Anne can not be sure whilst the shadows of her past continue to haunt her: is her mind playing tricks on her?
