From Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author of
the Rizzoli & Isles series, her stunning first thriller!
A beautiful young womanâ€™s corpse is found dumped in a
garbage-strewn alley. Now laid out in the office of medical
examiner Kat Novak is an unidentified body that betrays no
secretsâ€”except for a matchbook clutched in one stiff hand,
seven numbers scrawled inside.
When a second victim is
discovered, Kat begins to fear that a serial killer is
stalking the streets, using a deadly drug to do his dirty
work. The police are skeptical. The mayor wonâ€™t listen. One
of the townâ€™s most prominent citizens, with a missing
daughter of his own, is also Katâ€™s chief suspect. As the
death toll rises, Kat races to expose a deadly predator who
is close enough to touch her.
