Though former FBI Special Agent
Sloane Burbank once survived a life-threatening injury in
the line of duty, she now uses her specialized skills as
an independent consultant. But when one of her closest
childhood friends mysteriously disappears, Sloane takes
the case—even though her ex-lover Derek Parker is the FBI
agent in charge.
Special Agent Derek Parker has
no time to spare for a dead-end case—especially since it
would mean working with a woman he never expected to see
again. But as more women disappear and others turn up
brutally murdered, he and Sloane come to the sickening
realization that these random crimes are linked to the
same crazed killer, a fiend with a mind so psychotic, so
twisted, that it will take everything Sloane has to
capture him—even as she becomes his latest target.
