Excerpts from the Kirkus Review:
"Stevens sets the stage for graphic sensory details and a fast-paced, tantalizing mystery that utilizes her passion and research in forensics and psychology."
"Readers will relate to the San Francisco and Los Angeles settings, and Stevens’ allusions to “Cask of Amontillado” and Frankenstein craft a story immersed in theater, disguise and secrecy."
"Memorable characters, macabre scenes and a dazzling portrayal of reality will leave readers anxious for book two in the Gabriel McRay series."
Also Available At:
Grisly murders are taking place high in the Santa Monica Mountains. On each of the victim’s bodies is a note left for the L.A. Sheriff detective, Gabriel McRay. The killer’s identity is locked in the suppressed memory of a horrifying trauma from Gabriel’s own childhood. Teamed with his forensic pathologist girlfriend and his psychiatrist, Gabriel runs two parallel investigations, the first; a dark journey into the terrifying recollections of his past and the second; the hunt for a serial killer who seems to know more about Gabriel than he knows himself.
