The next in the bestselling series of psychological thrillers featuring Carson Ryder, the detective with a unique perspective on serial killers
Soon after witnessing the escape of violent psychopath Bobby Crayline from prison, Alabaman detective Carson Ryder takes a rare break in the mountains. But his vacation is interrupted when an anonymous phone call summons him to the scene of a grisly murder.
