Description

FACELESS VICTIMS.

Dozens of identical shoes have washed up on the beach in the quiet resort town of Sanibel Island, Florida. They appear completely ordinary but for one thing - each contains a crudely severed human foot.

A SEA OF UNANSWERED QUESTIONS.

Faced with an incomprehensible puzzle and ever more confusing pathology reports, the local police call on FBI Special Agent A. X. L. Pendergast for his expertise.

An adversary with a sadistic agenda and his sights on the perfect subject for his malevolent research...
