The Cheerleader brings London to its knees, striking without mercy, killing a succession of people who appear to be unconnected to each other… or are they?

Surrounded by death, newly transitioned London Underground worker Raagavi Saranthan cannot understand why all those around her are being violently murdered. Especially as it is those who have caused Raagavi misery who seem to be the victims of the mysterious Cheerleader.

Enter Rachel Cortes, a DCI who seems to follow no laws, nor answer to anyone. Fuelled by her sheer disdain for everyone and everything, Cortes must investigate the psychological world of a killer intent on vengeance for all the right reasons.

Nothing is off limits as depravity, sexuality and corruption merge with a sound moral compass complete with upstanding values. There is no line that the Cheerleader will not cross. Raagavi’s world is in the hands of all but herself. Through all of this, Rachel Cortes must navigate an investigation where a simple slight or misspoken truth results in the ultimate penalty.

Can Cortes get to the bottom of the case or is the strangely supportive Cheerleader creating a better world?
