"Lisa Black always delivers." —Jeff Lindsay, creator of the DEXTER series
When it comes to the dead, forensic investigator Maggie Gardiner has seen it all. But detective Jack Renner knows there are always more ways to die . . .
The Cleveland Herald is making headlines for all the wrong reasons. A dead body found hanging above the newspaper's assembly line is a surefire way to stop the presses. Forensic investigator Maggie Gardiner rules out suicide. The evidence tells her a murderer is implementing a staff cut—and the killing is far from over.
Homicide detective Jack Renner believes in justice—by any means necessary. If killing is what it takes, he won't let the law get in his way. It's just too bad Maggie knows his secrets. As the body count rises, Maggie has no choice but to put her trust in the one person she can never trust.
