Deep in the heart of a heartless city... She could have been any homeless, nameless young woman trying to escape Seattle's mean streets. Except the sixteen-year-old who stumbled into the shelter that night was missing a lot of blood, and something even more vital... Somewhere between life and death... For police woman Daphne Matthews, it was bizarre enough to call on the best cop she knew... especially when a search turned up more than she knew... especially when a search turned up more mutilated corpses. For ex-homicide detective Lou Boldt, it was the kind of case he couldn't resist. And for Elden Tegg, healer, only path to salvation... and immorality... Lurks the angel maker. And now, as the body count rises, tow cops try one last, desperate ploy. But they'd better start praying. Because it will take a miracle to stop a killer who's about to make one final, unforgettable contribution to humankind...

This book like most of Ridley Pearson's books was just plain great. Full of suspense and a bit of intrigue. I just like his writing style more and more each book I read. I was moved a few times which rarely happens to me while reading a book. I experienced sadness, worry and actually was scared at one point. Terrific. Its brilliant how the writer can twist your thoughts and how you feel. I think its a true talent. A gift Pearson has... A great read in my opinion. 5 of 5

I was introduced to Ridley Pearson thru Parallel Lies, which I thought was fantastic. I also read Art of Deception as well as No Witness and Blood of the Albatross, which were also great reads, but this book is the best yet. His story is compelling and horrifying. It took me about a day to run thru this book, and wish it never ended.

As I read this book it kept me enthralled i couldn't put it down. Every fact they discovered through the forensic procedures to the basic spine tingling chills were total and complete entrapment. It inspired me to read several other pearson books.

So well written one can SEE the story. But can't put the book down. I can hear the barking of the beasts.

Being a dog lover,this was a rough book to read, especially with all that's going on with 'killer' Michael Vick presently. And, whom I'm afraid will get off with just a slap on the wrist. Oh how I hope I'm wrong about that. I'd like to see him fed to the fighting dogs he mistreated. 'There are 9 books in the Lou Bolt/Daphne Matthews series amd they should be read in order of publication to watch the characters grow.'
