He surfaced two years ago. Then he disappeared. But Detective Angie Pallorino hasn’t forgotten the violent rapist who left a distinctive calling card—crosses etched into the flesh of his victim’s foreheads.

When a comatose Jane Doe is found in a local cemetery, sexually assaulted, mutilated, and nearly drowned, Angie is struck by the eerie similarities to her earlier unsolved rapes. Could he be back? Then the body of a drowned young woman, also bearing the marks of the serial rapist, floats up in the Gorge, and the hunt for a predator becomes a hunt for a killer.

Assigned to the joint investigative task force, Angie is more than ready to prove that she has what it takes to break into the all-male homicide division. But her private life collides with her professional ambitions when she’s introduced to her temporary partner, James Maddocks—a man she’d met just the night before in an intense, anonymous encounter.

Together, Angie and Maddocks agree to put that night behind them. But as their search for the killer intensifies, so does their mutual desire. And Angie’s forays into the mind of a monster shake loose some unsettling secrets about her own past.

How can she fight for the truth when it turns out her whole life is a lie?

    I liked this book. I thought that at times, the reader spent too much time in Angie’s Head. I felt at times Angie was too angry, without much explanation I could have done with less sex I couldn’t stand the narration Julie’s presentation was so “ sing, song” it drive me to distractin I don’t think I could listen to Julie read another book

    I have no complaints about the book it was interesting and made you interested in the characters. However, the narrator’s (Julie McKay’s) voice and accent drove me crazy, batty, grated on my nerves like fingernails on chalkboard. It was like listening to a 50-year-old Valley girl. The ends of sentences dragged out and ended in a high notes. There was a strange sing song quality to her narration. Many times I nearly turned off the book just because I couldn’t stand to listen to her voice anymore. First time I’ve thought of just abandoning a book. The only reason I didn’t was that I was interested in the story. I will never ever, ever buy a book again narrated by her.
