Tracking down a murderer in King's Cross, one of the busiest meeting points in Britain, would be a nightmare for any police force. The discovery of a decapitated body in a shop freezer should be a case for the Peculiar Crimes Unit, but the team has been disbanded, with retirement the only option for its elderly detectives, Bryant and May.

When a second headless corpse is found, and a strange half-man, half-beast sporting antlers made of knives begins stalking construction sites at night, the PCU is back in business, searching for body parts and behaving disgracefully as they go in search of London's pagan secrets.
