The murder victim was a young teen aged girl---a beautiful blonde---almost untouchable---Her body had been laid out with her hair arranged in a halo around her carefully-washed face, and a blood-stained red velvet rose over her heart. Someone had worshipped her---even after her death. Sheriff Brian Thompson had only been in office for a short time when this electrifying murder case fell in his jurisdiction. In the small, mid-western town of Haysville, the only crimes had been jaywalkers and water-melon thieves but Brian was still young enough to sense and understand the teen-age world and it's nebulous and slightly rebellious counter-culture. Through his investigation, the small mid-western town of Haysville comes alive and the reader gets to know the people and their concerns. Brian questions the friends and admirers of the victim and digs into the lives of her close-knit circle of friends. To make the case even more frustrating, a blood red velvet rose is found every morning on Sophia's grave. The only times there is no rose is when Brian puts someone in the cemetery to watch. As time goes on, it becomes obvious that someone is taunting Brian---and knows every move he makes. He knows the psychotic killer is among this close circle of friends and is a master of deception. A dangerous criminal mind that hides beneath the facade of staid and normal respectability. But Brian has help in the person of Karen Wells, the victim's best friend, and finds himself falling in love---or is she suspet too? The identity of the killer is a shocker and, as the story ufolds, the reader is drawn into a nightmare scenario that lives like a cancer in the darker edges of the small town and chills the blood of the the small town Sheriff.
