When sheâ€™s called to the murder scene, the last thing San
Francisco Homicide detective Valerie Hart is expecting is
for Katherine Glass to walk back into her life. Six years
earlier, revulsion and fascination had gripped the nation
in equal measure, as beautiful, intelligent,
utterly evil―Katherine Glass had been convicted on
counts of Murder One. But the freshly-mutilated corpse in
the ground-floor apartment bears all the hallmarks of
Katherineâ€™s victims. And then thereâ€™s the note, with its
chilling implications. Addressed to Valerie.
To stop the slaughter, Valerie has no choice. She must ask
Katherine Glass to help her decipher the killerâ€™s twisted
message. But that means re-entering the pitch-black
labyrinth that is Katherineâ€™s mind, and this time Valerie
isnâ€™t so sure which one of them will survive.
