Overview

Chicago cop Jacqueline “Jack” Daniels has chased and caught dozens of dangerous criminals over the course of her career. But she’s about to meet her match.

When Jack wakes up in a storage locker, bound and gagged, she knows with chilling certainty who her abductor is.

He’s called “Mr. K,” and more than two hundred homicides have been attributed to him. His victims have died in the most horrible ways imaginable: he is the essence of evil. Some think he’s just an urban legend, but he’s very, very real. Jack has tangled with him twice in the past, and both times he managed to slip away.

Now Jack will finally have the chance to confront the maniac she’s been hunting for over twenty-five years. Unfortunately, it won’t be on her terms. In less than two hours, Mr. K is going to do to Jack what he’s done to countless others. And Jack is going to learn that sometimes the good guys don’t win...

Kirkus Reviews

Chicago police detective Jack Daniels faces death and a heavy dose of flashbacks.

When she comes to, Lt. Jacqueline Daniels is lying bound, gagged and stripped to her T-shirt and panties in a storage locker. Someone has kidnapped her with the firm intention of torturing her to death, and she knows who. It's the cold-blooded hit man police have dubbed Mr. K, a man responsible for more than 100 killings across the country. Jack and Mr. K have tangled before, and while she struggles in vain to free herself and watches the clock her captor has thoughtfully provided mark off the minutes till he comes to play with her, she reminisces about the time three years ago when she and her partner, Det. Herb Benedict, almost caught Mr. K; the day back in 1989, shortly after she transferred to Homicide, when she was working the case of the tortured escorts and had to decide whether to accept her boyfriend Alan's proposal; her eventful 29th birthday, when she was still working Vice; and the psychiatrist's lecture to her and her fellow cadets that raised the question of whether it was more evil to kill people for money or for pleasure. The multiple-flashback structure is hardly original, but Konrath works it with an earnestness that makes his horrors considerably more disciplined than usual (Cherry Bomb,2009, etc.).

Spoiler alert: Like an R-rated Pearl White, Jack will be rescued repeatedly from certain death, presumably to be staked out again forStirrednext year.
