Janelle Becker is the agent with the FBI's Behavioral

know where he'll strike next? And can she escape her own dark past
before it's too late?

As she and her fellow agents track down

becomes a race against this faceless killer as they struggle to predict
his movements and get ahead of his deadly message of judgment. Can they
stop him in time?

About the author

Michael J. Scott writes fiction that doesn't shy away from hard questions or dicey situations. He treats his characters like real people with real flaws who sometimes do wrong and stupid things--especially when they're trying to do the right thing.

His interests range from the erosion of the American family, socio-political unrest in the U.S. that threatens to break into civil war, UFO's, adventures in Biblical and Christian archaeology, dystopias, sword and sorcery fantasy, to getting inside the mind of a serial killer.
