Who will be next?
Though former FBI Special Agent Sloane Burbank once survived a life-threatening injury in the line of duty, she now uses her specialized skills as an independent consultant. But when one of her closest childhood friends mysteriously disappears, Sloane takes the case—even though her ex-lover Derek Parker is the FBI agent in charge.
Special Agent Derek Parker has no time to spare for a dead-end case—especially since it would mean working with a woman he never expected to see again. But as more women disappear and others turn up brutally murdered, he and Sloane come to the sickening realization that these random crimes are linked to the same crazed killer, a fiend with a mind so psychotic, so twisted, that it will take everything Sloane has to capture him—even as she becomes his latest target.
One year after a childhood friend disappeared, Sloane Burbank agrees to look into the case at the urging of her friend, Penny’s, mother. As a civilian investigator, Sloane isn’t forced to follow the rigid rules that the FBI have. The only thing she needs is to meet with the lead investigator of Penny’s case. To her dismay, the lead investigator is none other than her ex-lover, Derek Parker. She won’t let that stop her from bringing closure to Penny’s family, even if it does resurrect memories she’d rather keep buried.
It doesn’t take long for Derek and Sloane to start piecing facts together. The abduction of Penny was far from random. As a matter of fact, the more Sloane starts digging, the more disturbing it gets. Over 10 women have abducted over the past 18 months, all with some sort of connection to Sloane. Then Derek and Sloane learn that Sloane’s stalker seems to be the same serial killer that is causing a gang war to erupt between two powerful Asian gangs in NYC.
