Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

He doesnt kill for thrills, for sex, or even for power.

Its far more twisted than that….

Cody McFadyen, acclaimed author of The Darker Side, The Face of Death, and Shadow Man, delivers this shocking new thriller that brings to light a psychopath unlike any weve ever seena killer who thrives in absolute darkness and doesnt derive pleasure from the kill. And only one woman has the ability to see him coming…even if its already too late to stop her own murder.

For FBI Special Agent Smoky Barrett, the wedding of one of their own was cause for celebration. Until a woman staggered down the aisle, incoherent, emaciated, head shaved, and wearing only a white nightgown.

No one knows who she is or where shes come fromor why shes chosen to appear in a church filled with law enforcement agents. Then a fingerprint check determines that the woman has been missing for nearly eight yearsthat once she was someones wife, someones mother…and a cop. Imprisoning her in a dark cell, depriving her of any contact with the outside world, her enigmatic captor was a man she didnt know and who seldom spoke, who punished her only when she failed to follow his most basic instructions designed to keep her alive.

Cold, businesslike, seemingly indifferent to his victims, hes a predator with an M.O. as terrifyingly inscrutable as any Smoky has ever encountered. As she fits together the pieces of what remains of his victims fractured life, a chilling picture emerges of a killer every bit as calculating, masterful, and professional as Smoky and the team she leadsa professional psychopath who doesnt take murder personally and never makes a mistake.

Theres a reason he let one of his victims go free. And by the time Smoky pierces the darkness of his twisted mind, it may cost her more than she can bear to lose to escape. For a trap snapped closed the moment she took this case too much to heart.

From the Hardcover edition.
