“Reed Writes As Only A Cop Can…. Impressive And Dramatic.” –Nelson Demille
Take One Deranged Killer. Add One Determined Cop.
You Get One Deadly Obsession…
From the moment he sees the young woman’s body in her hotel bathtub, homicide detective Jack Murphy knows he’s looking at a truly demented but brilliantly designed puzzle. She’s been drained of blood. Missing her left hand–and the killer left a special message just for him. Hours later, he sees her severed hand arranged on a second victim’s body. The newspaper has the gruesome details. The FBI has a theory. But only Murphy knows how hard he’ll have to push–and how much he’ll have to risk–to thwart the killer’s twisted game.
