Kevin Byrne is a veteran cop who he’s been living on the edge for far too long. His marriage failing, his former partner wasting away in a hospital, and his heart lost to its own mad fury, Byrne is breaking every rule in the book.
Now, he has been given a rookie partner, the daughter of a famous Philly cop. Jessica Balzano doesn’t need Byrne’s kind of help, but they need each other desperately. Because they’ve just caught the case of a lifetime. Someone is killing devout young women, bolting their hands together in prayer, and committing an abomination upon their otherwise perfect bodies. These girls all have one thing in common and until Byrne and Balzano discover what this is, they have no chance of catching the killer or preventing him from striking again.
This is a book that is as compelling as it is horrifying and one i simply could not put down.
