Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

FBI Medical Examiner Dr. Jessica Coran is investigating a series of bizarre murders attributed to the Poet. His calling card is human skin engraved with toxic ink and verse. For Jessica, the most baffling aspect of the crimes is that no victim shows signs of resistance, or even fear. Only she has the insight to read between the Poet's lines-and to stop him before his final stroke of insane genius.

FBI Medical Examiner Dr. Jessica Coran is pitted against a serial killer with a passion for poetry--and the need to carve it into his victims' flesh. But the most baffling part of the crimes is that each victim has been willing to die for the madman's art.
