A new murder case with ties to a convicted serial killer
leads Detective Ellie Hatcher into a twisting
with explosive and deadly results in this superb mystery
from the “terrific web spinner” (Entertainment
Weekly) Alafair Burke.
Brunswick is murdered in her Park Slope office, the
city suspects her estranged husband—until the District
Attorney’s office receives an anonymous letter. The
author knows a chilling detail that police have kept
the victim’s bones were broken after she was killed. Her
injuries were eerily similar to the signature used twenty
years earlier by Anthony Amaro, a serial killer serving a
life sentence for his crimes. Now, Amaro is asking to be
released from prison, arguing that he was wrongly
and that the true killer is still on the loose.
Detectives Ellie Hatcher and JJ Rogan are tapped as the
“fresh look” team to reassess the original investigation
that led to Amaro’s conviction. The case pits them
both their fellow officers and a hard-charging celebrity
defense lawyer with a young associate named Carrie Blank,
whose older sister was one of Amaro’s victims.
NYPD and Amaro’s lawyers search for certainty among
conflicting evidence, their investigations take them back
Carrie’s hometown, where secrets buried long ago lead to
brutal attack—one that makes it terrifyingly clear that
someone has gotten too close to the truth.
