In the prologue of this book there is an event, thirteen years before the main story continues, that will bring the rest of the book into focus. It's a difficult segment but, the author obviously felt the need to include it and, being a good writer, set the rest of the book up for us.
Lucy Kincaid, the heroine of this novel is about to start FBI training at Quantico. She is an analyst who is always fighting against cyber sex crimes as she was once the victim of an online predator. She is called in by her superior to see if she can help on the murder case of a call girl who was linked recently to a powerful Congressman.
There continues to be other prostitutes that have many highly placed clients who have been found dead all over the Washington area and Lucy and company have to figure out if the crimes are being perpetrated by an extremely disgusting killer or an inside job that started with the Congressmen themselves. This case will pit Lucy against some really strong personalities beginning with the country's most powerful political mavens, through her past, and on to the network of the lives of prostitutes in order to find this ellusive enemy, who is always just a step ahead of her.
Along with her significant other, Sean Rogan, who is a Private Investigator, Lucy is looking for the only witness who can name the killer and end all the horrible murders. Lucy is risking a lot, including her new job with the FBI to find the truth about these murders and, of course, the killer is coming after her with a vengeance.
This novel is a very difficult read that goes into some dark places that we all know exist but, try to ignore them for the most part. The writing is first rate and she takes you into a world that you wouldn't want to live in. The characters are believeable and tragic and the ending is truly very strong and very clear.
Lucy Kincaid is back—with a vengeance.
