The story begins with the discovery of yet another body. A young blonde woman lies dead, a victim of torture, strangulation, and sexual assault, just like the other victims. Sam realizes that this has all the makings of a serial killer- the victims all have the same stature, but differ in ethnicity. Thus begins the task of sifting through missing person's profiles to see if there are any more victims out there.
The rest of the story takes the reader on a journey with Sam as she scours the borough of Manhattan in an effort to track down the killer and prevent any more victims. The combination of Sam's aggressiveness and Steiner's experience makes this tale an interesting cat-and-mouse chase. With the twists and turns in the plot along with deftly drawn characters, the reader is captivated at the outset.
