--Tess Gerritsen

Back cover copy

Seventy-five years ago, the Torso Killer terrorized a city with a horrific spree of murder/dismemberments. He was never caught.

It would be impossible for the maniac to still be at large--and active--today . . .

A decapitated body has been found in a sealed room in an abandoned building--and forensic scientist Theresa MacLean believes the decades-old corpse is a previously unaccounted-for victim of the legendary psychopath. But the discovery of a second body--newly slain and bearing the unmistakable signature of the Torso Killer--suggests the unthinkable: that a copycat serial killer is following in a madman's bloody footprints.

A long-dormant nightmare has been reawakened as a dark history repeats itself. Theresa MacLean's forensic investigation has opened a door into a terrifying past--a door someone desperately wants to keep closed . . . and will keep killing to make it so.
