One deranged killer. One determined cop. One deadly obsession…“Readers will definitely want to see more of Reed’s character Jack Murphy.”—John Lutz, New York Times-bestselling author of Darker Than Night

From the moment he sees the young woman’s body in her hotel bathtub, homicide detective Jack Murphy knows he’s looking at a truly demented but brilliantly designed puzzle. She’s been drained of blood. She’s missing her left hand. And the killer left a special message just for him. Hours later, he sees her severed hand arranged on a second victim’s body. The newspaper has the gruesome details. The FBI has a theory. But only Murphy knows how hard he’ll have to push—and how much he’ll have to risk—to thwart the killer’s twisted game.
