MESSIAH 2 (article first published : 2003-12-30)

Starting on December 30 at 21h30, Messiah 2- Vengeance is mine, is the second instalment of a two-part thriller on M-Net that still follows the hunt for a serial killer. It's a gripping and challenging follow-up to the hugely successful psychological thriller Messiah.

Ken Stott returns as DCI Red Metcalfe, a man totally dedicated to putting killers behind bars. As the guilty and the innocent are slaughtered without mercy, uncomfortable truths come home to roost for the officers on DCI Red Metcalfe's team. When his own estranged brother is found knifed in the hustle and bustle of Leadenhall Market, the hunt for justice gets personal.

So far there are fifteen horrific deaths reported but it is only the four murders committed in the first series that set off a chain of these terrifying killings.

Four convicted men are safely behind bars for those murders. Yet someone, somewhere believes they are innocent. Which can only mean that the real murderers are still out there and justice - brutal, bloody and painstakingly planned - is being meted out by a sadistic serial killer.

Could the police have made mistakes that resulted in the wrong men being imprisoned? Or has there been a cover-up to hide the shocking truth that evidence has been withheld, or tampered with to obtain unsafe convictions?

The horrifying truth dawns as the body count rises. The killer is out for revenge - and not one of the investigating teams, or their nearest and dearest, is safe ...
