Description

Joanna Blalock listens to the dead - piecing together puzzles of blood, flesh, and DNA to tell stories of lives ended by natural causes, by accident, or by murder. Detective Jake Sinclair pries secrets from the living - hunting down killers who roam among the innocent, seeking their next victim.An explosion shatters a quiet residential neighborhood, leveling half a suburban block and killing twenty people. As shock waves echo across Los Angeles, experts search the wreckage for answers. Amid the rubble and scattered pieces of humanity, a grim picture emerges: of terrorists destroyed by their own explosives, and of innocent lives caught in the crossfire.Joanna must sift through the scant physical evidence to reconstruct the lives and identities of the victims. When the only potential witness to the bomb blast is killed and Joanna uncovers a link to an unsolved homicide, a case of accidental death suddenly looks like one of cold-blooded murder. Racing to stop a killer who is always one step ahead of them, the LAPD and the FBI soon discover that their elusive quarry is not acting alone but is part of a larger, covert group whose true mission - and ultimate target - is about to become chillingly clear.show more
