Some American cities thrive on the gilded dreams of young hopefuls. An endless stream of beautiful naïve woman, barely out-of-school ebb and flow through their streets, providing a smorgasbord for predators. Few of these women will see their names in lights, the grim realities of city life forcing them to find alternative income sources; improving their chances of being victimized.
Rarely do these women get noticed. But when over a dozen of these women disappear in a short time to never reappear, even law enforcement pays attention. The FBI arrives first on the scene, but no bodies leaves the agents impotent. They pass the case along to the Serial Crimes Tracking Unit.
Aislinn Cain instantly realizes there are two major difficulties for her and her team: The victims are prostitutes, and most people don't care if someone is murdering prostitutes, and without bodies it is impossible to make a case that they have become prey for a serial killer. However, after looking through the case files assembled on the missing women, she knows in her bones that Nashville, Tennessee, has a serial killer stalking the streets at night.
This case will test Aislinn Cain as she struggles against people who consider themselves morally superior to the victims and work with academics to invent new search techniques to discover their victims' remains. This will be the first time she's using the new investigative skills she's learned, along with trusting her intuition and knowledge of the killers that hunt in the dark.
