Publisher Comments:

Irene Kelly fights for her life in this blood-chilling sequel to the Edgar Award–winning smash hit Bones.

Despite her reporter’s nose for trouble, Irene Kelly’s life has almost returned to normal—the Las Piernas News Express wobbles along in defiance of its financial woes, and with the help of her husband, Frank, and a good therapist, she’s recovered from the debilitating post-traumatic stress disorder that haunted her after her near-fatal encounter with notorious serial killer Nick Parrish. Until she receives some unwelcome news: Parrish, once thought permanently paralyzed by the injuries he sustained fleeing recapture, is walking again. And the rumor among the Moths, Parrish’s online fan club, is that he’s coming after Irene.

Suddenly Irene is on the other end of the microphone, being hounded by the media for interviews and plied with questions she’d hoped never to have to answer again. She tries to believe that she is safe from Parrish, who is imprisoned in a maximum security facility, and that the growing stream of threats from the Moths is all just talk. But an unnerving prank soon lets her know that someone, at least, wants her to be afraid. And when a young woman’s body turns up in the trunk of a car near her home—naked, frozen solid, and decorated from head to toe in elaborately painted moths—it becomes clear that Irene will once again find herself pitted against a brutal murderer. She knows the twisted hunter who is stalking her all too well . . . or does she?

Review:

"Psychopath Nicholas Parrish, who almost cost Irene Kelly her life in the Edgar-winning Bones, returns in Burke's overwrought 11th thriller featuring the California newspaper reporter (after 2006's Kidnapped). When bodies start popping up bearing Parrish's elaborate moth designs and his online devotees — the Moths — become more active, Kelly fears the imprisoned Parrish is planning a comeback, having made a miraculous recovery from a spinal cord injury. Life at work is far from pleasant, as her paper, Las Piernas News Express, struggles to survive in a world that relies less on print media, forcing Kelly to make a radical career choice. Much of the suspense dissipates as Burke intercuts Kelly's chapters with those focusing on Parrish and three men the reader soon learns are half-brothers and sons of the serial killer. The stage is inevitably set for Parrish's escape and rematch with Kelly, familiar territory from Bones that does little to flex Kelly's formidable investigative skills or Burke's narrative ones.
