Two detectives go up against a sadistic killer with a penchant for murder mysteries in this thriller by the bestselling author of M for Murder.
When a teenager is found stabbed to death, detectives Rebecca Angell and Jake Sullivan are called to the scene. The clues soon lead them to a crime novel that provided the killer with gruesome inspiration.
The author, Amy Gallaty, has a new book out, prompting the detectives to question how far she is prepared to go in the name of promotion. But when Gallaty attracts the attentions of a stalker and then a second murder mirrors another of her plots, Angell and Sullivan realize they are up against a cruel and clever psychopath—one who may have a more personal agenda.
Working with the FBI, Angell and Sullivan find themselves in a race against the clock to unlock the secrets in Gallsty’s past before the killer can strike again . . .
