The Southern Strangler is speeding up his gruesome game. He's becoming careless, but not careless enough: three bodies and still the only clue is his calling card ... the severed hand of his previous victim.
Each one has been a beautiful young girl – killed in one city, dumped in another, the latest in Nashville. What did they have in common, what could link them to a savage serial killer?
As the Strangler's murderous rampage through America's South East gathers pace, local homicide chief Taylor Jackson and FBI profiler Dr John Baldwin, are at a loss. And a media leak is making matters worse.
Ambitious TV reporter Whitney Connolly knows she's onto a scoop that just might be her ticket out of Nashville. But she's not going to tell.

Though Whitney should know already that secrets come at a price, this time she has no idea what it will cost her, or how close to this story she really is.

Scotland Yard’s new chief inspector Nicholas Drummond is on the first flight to New York when he learns his colleague, Elaine York, the “minder” of the Crown Jewels for the “Jewel of the Lion” exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, was found murdered. Then the centerpiece of the exhibit, the infamous Koh-i-Noor Diamond, is stolen from the Queen Mother’s crown.

Homicide detective Taylor Jackson thinks she's seen it all in Nashville––but she's never seen anything as perverse as The Conductor. Once his victim is captured, he contains her in a glass coffin, slowly starving her to death. Only then does he give in to his attraction.
Later, he creatively disposes of the body by reenacting scenes from famous paintings. Strangely, similar macabre works are being displayed in Europe. Taylor teams up with her fiancé, FBI profiler Dr. John Baldwin, and New Scotland Yard detective James \Memphis\" Highsmythe––a haunted man who has eyes only for Taylor––to put an end to The Conductor's art collection.
Has the killer gone international? Or are there dueling artists, competing to create the ultimate masterpiece?
On the other end of the line is an old boyfriend's mother asking Sam to do a second autopsy on her son. Eddie Donovan is officially the victim of a vicious carjacking, but under Sam's sharp eye, the forensics tell a darker story. The ex–Ranger was murdered...though not for his car.
Forced to confront the burning memories and feelings about yet another loved one killed brutally, Sam loses herself in the mystery contained within Donovan's old notes. It leads her to the untouchable Xander– a soldier off–grid since his return from Afghanistan– and then to a series of brutal crimes stretching from that harsh mountainous war zone to the nation's capital.
The tale told between the lines makes it clear that nobody's hands are clean, and that making sense of murder sometimes means putting yourself in the crosshairs of death.
