Illona Haus's grittiest, most riveting thriller yet -- the third novel featuring Detective Kay Delaney -- takes readers into the twisted mind of a serial rapist and on a desperate hunt for the detective he has brutally abducted.
They don't know if she's alive.... He had seen her in his dreams, knew she was the one. But when Daryl Eugene Wardell kidnaps her -- his next victim in a long line of female prey -- he thinks she is just another hooker no one will miss. He hadn't counted on her being a cop, tough as nails, with the entire Baltimore police force fighting for her survival.
But they'll do anything it takes to find her. In the midst of the biggest crime wave ever to hit the city, Detective Kay Delaney is struck with shattering news. One of her own, Detective Micky Luttrell, has vanished during an undercover sting as a prostitute. With little evidence to go on, the determined Kay is handpicked to work with her former lover, Danny Finnerty, to find Micky's abductor. Putting all else aside, Kay will do whatever it takes to rescue her fellow officer from the torturous clutches of a sadistic killer -- who defies everything she thought she knew about the most twisted side of human nature.
