Add to Wish List
Hollywood homicide detective Petra Connor has helped
psychologist Alex Delaware crack tough cases in the past.
And in Jonathan Kellerman’s New York Times bestseller Billy
Straight she took the lead in the desperate hunt for a
teenage runaway stalked by a vengeful murderer. Now the
complex and wryly compassionate Petra is once again at the
center of the action, in a novel of cunning twists and page-
Lifeless bodies sprawl in a dance-club parking lot after a
brutal L.A. drive-by. Of the four seemingly random victims,
one stands out: a girl with pink shoes who cannot be
identified–and who, days later, remains a Jane Doe. With
zero leads and no apparent motive, it’s another case
destined for the cold file–until Petra decides to follow
her instincts and descends into a world of traveling
grifters and bloodthirsty killers, pursuing a possible
eyewitness whose life is in mortal danger.
Finding her elusive quarry–alive–isn’t all Petra has on her
plate: departmental politics threatens to sabotage her
case, and her personal life isn’t doing much better. If all
that wasn’t enough, Isaac Gomez, a whiz-kid grad student
researching homicide statistics at the station house, is
convinced he’s stumbled upon a bizarre connection between
several unsolved murders. The victims had nothing in
common, yet each died by the same method, on the same date–
a date that’s rapidly approaching again. And that leaves
Petra with little time to unravel the twisted logic of a
cunning predator who’s evaded detection for years–and whose
terrible hour is once more at hand.
