The Eleventh Victim, from former prosecutor Nancy Grace, is a tense thriller depicting a battle of wits between a lawyer, a serial killer, and the NYPD As a young psychology student, Hailey Dean's world explodes when Will, her fiance, is murdered just weeks before their wedding. Reeling, she fights back the only way she knows how: In court, prosecuting violent crime...putting away the bad guys one rapist, doper, and killer at a time. But dedicating her life to justice takes a toll after years of trials and the endless tide of victims calling out from crime scene photos and autopsy tables. Just as she grows truly weary, a serial killer unlike any other she's encountered begins to stalk the city of Atlanta, targeting young prostitutes, each horrific murder bearing his own unique mark. This courtroom battle will be her last. Hailey heads for Manhattan to pick up the pieces of the life she had before Will's murder, training as a therapist. In a vibrant new world, she finally leaves her ghosts behind. But then her own clients are brutally murdered, one by one, by a copycat using the same M.O. as the Atlanta killer she hunted down years before. Hailey's own DNA is found at the crime scenes. As the body count rises across Manhattan, Hailey is forced to match wits not only with a killer, but with the famed NYPD. Unless she returns to her former life and solves the case, still more innocent people will die at the hands of a killer who plans to get her before she can get him.
