"A taut and haunting story that will stay with you long after you finish reading it." --Jeff Lindsay, creator of the DEXTER series
For Cleveland forensic investigator Maggie Gardiner, dead bodies are part of the job. It's the mind of a killer that keeps her awake at night . . .
When Maggie Gardiner notices a connection between the battered body of a young girl left in a cemetery and a career criminal shot in an alley, she must follow a trail no one else wants to see, picking up crumbs of evidence that no one else notices.
Jack Renner is accustomed to being the hunter, not the hunted. He kills to make the world a safer place--even if that makes it a more dangerous one for Maggie. He will not let her stop him.
One body at a time, Maggie circles in on a killer. But it's what she find inside herself that will bring the terrible truth to light . . .
