Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Masterfully Entertaining." --Houston Chronicle

They called him the Dollmaker-the serial killer who stalked Los Angeles and left a grisly calling card on the faces of his female victims. With a single faultless shot, Detective Harry Bosch thought he had ended the city's nightmare...

"Gritty." --San Diego Union-Tribune

But then the dead man's widow sues Harry and the LAPD for killing the wrong man-an accusation that rings terrifyingly true when a new victim is discovered with the Dollmaker's macabre signature...

"Outstanding...Can't Be Put Down." --Kansas City Star

Now, for the second time, Harry must hunt down a death-dealer who is very much alive, before he strikes again. It's a blood-tracked quest that will take Harry from the hard edges of the L.A. night to the last place he ever wanted to go-the darkness of his own heart.

"Crackling authenticity." --Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Turbo-charged...a darkly gripping tale." --Kirkus Reviews
