Three murders. Three detectives.
No solution.

From the creator of Taggart, a murder mystery set in the remote Cumbrian hills.

There’s been a murder – three of them in fact. It’s the tenth anniversary of a brutal triple killing on an isolated hillside. The case remains unsolved. Every year three former detectives meet up in a lonely farmhouse and journey to the scene of the crime in the hope that the murderer will reveal himself. But hair-raising events unfold when an unexpected guest comes knocking at the door. Will this be the night when justice is finally done?

A story of obsession, revenge and dark deeds, The Lamplighters will keep you guessing until the very last minute!

Glenn Chandler created for Scottish Television what is officially the longest running television detective series in the world. Taggart ran from 1983 to 2011, a run of twenty-eight years. He also wrote A is for Acid, about the acid-bath murderer John George Haigh, The Brides in the Bath, and The Life and Crimes of William Palmer, a study of the Victorian poisoner, all of which were produced by Yorkshire TV.
