Mallory Book 3: from New York Times bestseller Carol O'Connell, master of knife-edge suspense and intricate plotting.
Detective Kathy Mallory. New York's darkest. You only underestimate her once.
A deadly familiar crime.
An artist is murdered, in a stylish, surprising and deadly act of performance art. The murder almost goes unnoticed, but it reminds NYPD detective Kathy Mallory of an older, more brutal crime investigated years before by Mallory's now dead adoptive father.
A maverick cop with attitude.
As soon as Mallory starts to work on the new crime, old ghosts rise up, and the word comes down from on high to close her down, to shut her out of the case.
What if her father had been right? What if the butcher was still out there?
But for Mallory, rules exist only to be shattered ...
