Three victims. One method. One motive.

Grab a badge and a gun and strap in for a ride that's "full of suspense from the beginning to the end..." (Readers Abode). When dead bodies start piling up, Detective Madison Knight suspects that her city has a serial killer--but the quest for justice isn't going to be an easy one. Everyone--including her own partner, her sergeant, and the police chief--are working against her.

"Arnold has written one of the best female cops that I've ever read... Madison is just one of those characters that will stay with you." -Harlie's Books

A woman is found strangled in her bed, and Detective Madison Knight doesn't think it's anything more than an isolated incident. But when another woman's body is discovered in a park, killed with the same brand of neckties, she can't ignore the similarities between the two murders. Still, it's not until a third victim surfaces that Madison really starts to fear the worst: the city of Stiles just may have a serial killer.

Catching the murderer isn't going to be easy, though. She's facing pressure from the sergeant and the chief to close the case--even if it means putting an innocent man behind bars--and a partner who is more interested in saving his marriage than doing his job. If there's justice to be had, Madison may have to go this alone.
