A woman is found with her face removed hanging on a cross. The first question that needs to be answered is who is she? Then who killed her? She has a mark on the back of her neck that Detective Robert Hunter has seen before...but the man who made that mark, on his victims before killing them, is now dead so does this mean that there is a new crucifix killer or was the wrong man arrested?
This book introduces us to the combination of Hunter and the new boy Garcia. I wish I had read this before reading the Executioner as it does give background to both the detectives but particularly Hunter and I think he is a character who could go far.
Its a fast paced thriller with some gore. Recommeded for James Patterson fans!
