A series of murders brings Denver to its knees in this wonderfully voice-driven, dark, wry, and wholly original page-turning debut.
He didn’t take their lives - but he ruined them. The final victims of an infamous serial killer may be the ones he didn’t kill.
Hoskins cracked the case of one of the most infamous serial killers - and then it cracked him. He’s in cold cases, as is his career. Sammie was the lead reporter who broke the story, but now she’s selling makeup at the mall. She wants back on page 1. Gloria claims she was the unsuspecting wife. She didn’t know a thing.
And as new murders shake Denver, this is a final chance to get their lives back.
“Unusually thoughtful…Relies more on character studies than gory details…It’s the escalating psychological tension and the interactions of three-dimensional characters that lift this well above the serial-killer norm.” - Kirkus Reviews
“A taut thriller…Richly drawn and vividly imagined characters…Tense, compelling greatness. Chaney is an author to watch.” - Library Journal
