The first Robert Hunter thriller, from the Sunday Times bestselling author of One by One and An Evil Mind

When the body of a young woman is discovered in a derelict cottage in the middle of Los Angeles National Forest, Homicide Detective Robert Hunter finds himself entering a horrific and recurring nightmare. Naked, strung from two wooden posts, the victim was sadistically tortured before meeting an excruciatingly painful death. All the skin has been ripped from her face - while she was still alive. On the nape of her neck has been carved a strange double-cross: the signature of a psychopath known as the Crucifix Killer.

But that's impossible. Because two years ago, the Crucifix Killer was caught and executed. Could this therefore be a copycat killer? Or could the unthinkable be true? Is the real killer still out there, ready to embark once again on a vicious and violent killing spree, selecting his victims seemingly at random, taunting Robert Hunter with his inability to catch him?

Hunter and his rookie partner are about to enter a nightmare beyond imagining.

I am not really into detective/murder mystery stories so I was very surprised at my reaction to this book. I LOVED IT!! 450 pages and it took me 2.5 days to read it. I could not put it down. It was creepy to the point of giving me goosebumps. The characters were amazing. I never saw the ending coming. What a surprise!!
