On a hot summer night in Tampa, Jack Burcher climbed out his bedroom window to lay in the wildflower field and watch the stars. This night was very different. He witnessed his mother's abduction. With the police and FBI by the phone waiting for the ransom call, on the next night Jack sneaked out of his bedroom again. Afraid and confused, he had to return to his special place. To his surprise the sinister visitor stood in the shadows and night fog by the gates. He left a box. Only Jack's mother's heart is returned to the family.

Thirty-three years later someone takes his dying father out of a high-security sanitorium. The next night another box is delivered to the gates of the Burcher estate. Inside is his father's brain. But this time is different. Jack Burcher is the Chief Medical Examiner for Hillsborough County.

The FBI knows they are hunting the worst kind of serial killer. Now they must investigate three generations of Burcher family deaths to find where the killing trail begins. And they must talk to their only eyewitness, the ten-year-old boy with suppressed fears and pent-up rage. Time is running out. Dr. Jack Burcher is in the killer's sights.


When Lindsey Fetter opened her eyes, the monster that killed her husband stood at the end or her bed. When Charlie Dunn pocketed his cell phone and stared at the empty ice on Lake Michigan, he could not believe they released from prison the monster that killed his wife and son in front of him... When Ellen Dumont visited her parents gravesite alone, it never occurred to her it would be her last moment on earth...

450 murders is a slow year for Chicago Homicide Detective Aaron Wolfe, but he carries them all with him. He had learned how to bury the pain and anger so he could hunt the killers. But now rising crimson tide and failing legal system had become more than he could bear. Too many innocent victims, and too many killers escape the broken legal system. 

Then it happened. The worst of the worst that beat the system were taken out by snipers, and the snipers skulls were crushed by a monster. Wolfe knew two evil factions were engaged in a dark war in his city.  Can Wolfe uncover the secret force on a reckless mission to remedy a failing criminal justice system? Can he stop the skull-crushing beast terrorizing the city? Or will Wolfe succumb to his scars and let a new kind of justice into the city of predators?

Only the world-renowned forensic sleuth Dr. Elliott Sumner has a chance to untangle a macabre blood trail that could possibly identify the invaders and give the President time and more options.
