BOYARKA

fiction series


Year 2007. Several women of different age and looks are found dead on the outskirts of the small town Boiarka. Local corrupt law enforcement doesn’t investigate the murders, while rumors reach the capital and cause a stir. The case is assigned to an extraordinary investigator, Andrii. As an experienced hunter, he assembles his own team of the best Kyiv operatives.

The community doesn’t welcome the outsiders, and the reason is soon revealed: last year, more than 50 women were murdered in the Boiarka­–Vasylkiv­–Korchi triangle, and the number of those gone missing is unknown. All this time, local militia has been hiding the remains of the victims to cover their own negligence, and now, it deliberately obstructs the investigation, falsifies the results of the forensics, and plays into the hands of the murderer. Among the suspects is a victim’s husband, accidentally detained by passers-by during an attempted attack on a girl; he is not local.

The investigation is looking for the witnesses and female survivors. Oleksandr, a sketchy local operative, joins the group; he is the one who found the body of the first victim and contaminated the physical evidence while inspecting the crime scene. He becomes Andrii’s first assistant. Together they work out the portrait of the serial killer who violates all standards and approaches to a serial murder investigation. Realizing that he’s being hunted, the criminal turns even more sophisticated and starts to play with the investigators.

They will have to find a new approach to the search and profiling, look for answers in prison while conversing with Anatolii Onopriienko. For they’ve encountered an evil that’s difficult to comprehend.

Corrupt militia, lack of advanced technologies, indifference and silence of the locals works in murderer’s favor. And in favor of the investigation, there is only a desire to find out the truth and stop the beast.
