The first victim was discovered in a public park. Her body stabbed repeatedly, her hands and feet removed with clean, surgical precision. Tied to her chest, a coiled black snake, writhing and lashing. Even to a seasoned detective like Kate Beauchamp, a woman vulnerable to her own unsettled demons, the murder was extraordinary - less a crime scene than the site of a perverted sacrifice. But to what God? To what Devil? What's left of the second victim gives Kate a true vision of Hell - and the terrifying realization that there is only one way out: through the instincts of a genius schooled in the art of murder.
