The follow-up novel to Blood of the Lamb. A modern-day Jack the Ripper is cruising the night streets of L.A., stalking the strippers and hookers who dance in the neon-painted shadows of Sunset Strip. In his wake, the killer has left a trail of beautiful women–each brutally murdered and mutilated in a manner that speaks chilling volumes about their attacker’s madness. It’s once again up to Detectives Thomas Ridge and Scarlett McCullers to catch this hell-bent butcher. For unlike the legendary fiend he emulates, this killer isn’t about to go away.
