Thriller Police Procedural | Thriller Serial Killer
Detective Sloane Pearson is new to the Sex Crimes Division
but no stranger to being treated like an incompetent
blonde by her hardened male co-workers. Sheâ€™s also no
stranger to hard-to-crack cases, and her latest is as

Sloaneâ€™s balancing act topples when her father

following the few weak leads she has, her case begins to

When Sloane helps a hungry young Sun-
Times reporter declare the case serial, she loses
support: Her bosses demand she get a suspect or move on.

From the worst

skyscrapers, Sloane finds no shortage of suspects. As she
loses everything sheâ€™d called home, she can only hope to
find the rapist before she also becomes a victim.
