'This is crime-writing at its nerve-tingling best'
Harlan Coben

Then Jane makes a terrifying discovery. Years ago a young woman was assaulted in a similar way. She escaped by shooting her attacker dead.

So why does it feel like he's stalking her again?

Review quote

Superior to Patricia Cornwell and as good as James Patterson... Macabre and gruesome but absolutely riveting * Bookseller * This book is going to make you squirm... a taut, well-placed and throughly realistic thriller * The List * If you're home alone, do not risk even the first sentence. Once you've started reading this book, putting it down and saving it 'til later is not an option -- Mo Hayder, author of "Birdman" If you've never read Gerritsen, figure in the price of electricity when you buy your first novel by her, cause baby, you are going to be up all night -- Stephen King Grabbed me by the throat and didn't let go until its hair-raising finish. Deep, dark and very disturbing -- Tami Hoag

About Tess Gerritsen

Bestselling author Tess Gerritsen is also a physician, and she brings to her novels her first-hand knowledge of emergency and autopsy rooms. Her thrillers starring homicide detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles inspired the hit TV series Rizzoli & Isles. But Tess's interests span far more than medicine and crime. As an anthropology student at Stanford University, she catalogued centuries-old human remains, and she continues to travel the world, driven by her fascination with ancient cultures and bizarre natural phenomena.
