professor is found brutally mutilated in the local diner.
But it's only when town pediatrician and coroner Sara

investigation -- a trail of terror that grows increasingly
macabre when another local woman is found crucified a few
days later. But he's got more than a sadistic serial
killer on his hands, for the county's sole female
detective, Lena Adams -- the first victim's sister -- want
to serve her own justice.
But it is Sara who holds
the key to finding the killer. A secret from her past
could unmask the brilliantly malevolent psychopath .. or
mean her death.
