Thirty-three years pass. Jack’s dying father is taken from his bed at a high-security sanitorium. The next night another box is delivered to the gates of the Burcher estate. Jack holds his father’s brain in his trembling hands. But this time is different. Jack is the Chief Medical Examiner of Hillsborough County.
The FBI knows they are hunting the worst kind of serial killer. They must investigate three generations of Burcher family deaths to find where the kill-trail begins. And they must talk to the only eyewitness, the ten-year-old boy with suppressed fears and pent-up rage. Time is running out. The Chief Medical Examiner is in the killer’s sights.
