Summary
When the two strangers turn up at Rowena Cooper's isolated Colorado farmhouse, she knows instantly that it's the end of everything. For the two haunted and driven men, on the other hand, it's just another stop on a long and bloody journey. And they still have many miles to go, and victims to sacrifice, before their work is done.For San Francisco homicide detective Valerie Hart, their trail of victims--women abducted, tortured and left with a seemingly random series of objects inside them--has brought her from obsession to the edge of physical and psychological destruction. And she's losing hope of making a breakthrough before that happens.But the murders at the Cooper farmhouse didn't quite go according to plan. There was a survivor, Rowena's ten-year-old daughter Nell, who now holds the key to the killings. Injured, half-frozen, terrified, Nell has only one place to go. And that place could be even more dangerous than what she's running from.In this extraordinary, pulse-pounding debut, Saul Black takes us deep into the mind of a psychopath, and into the troubled heart of the woman determined to stop him

Summary
In this menacing, unnerving novel, which combines nail-biting suspense with all the details of a police procedural, a damaged female detective offers the best hope for justice for the victims of a sadistic killer -- and for preventing more cruel, violent deaths at his hands. Or are there two monsters? Detective Valerie Hart, battling personal and professional problems, shares narrative duties with both a potential victim desperate to live and the killer himself. Fair warning though -- this series debut is graphic and bloody. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
