"My name is Dr. Adeline Glen. Due to a genetic condition, I can t feel pain. I never have. I never will. "
The last thing Boston Detective D. D. Warren remembers is walking the crime scene after dark. Then, a creaking floorboard, a low voice crooning in her ear. . . .

"My sister is Shana Day, a notorious murderer who first killed at fourteen. Incarcerated for thirty years, she has now murdered more people while in prison than she did as a free woman."

The only person who may have seen the killer: Detective D. D. Warren, who still can t lift her child, load her gun, or recall a single detail from the night that may have cost her everything.

D.D. may not be back on the job, but she is back on the hunt. Because the Rose Killer isn t just targeting lone women, he is targeting D.D. And D.D. knows there is only one way to take him down:
