"On a hot August night, beautiful nineteen-year-old Rachel Helena Timmerman was brutally beaten and raped five times by a savage criminal. Her rapist was eventually caught and arrested, but made bond just as quickly and was able to walk the streets a free man until his court date. However, two days before she was to testify against her attacker in court, Rachel received a phone call inviting her and her baby daughter Shannon out for dinner. She was picked up at her father's house and never returned. A month later, Rachel's body was discovered in the swampland of Oxford Lake in Michigan. Her baby daughter was never found. Her head was wrapped in duct tape with only the nostrils of her nose exposed and she was chained to a sixty pound cement block. The FBI quickly mounted a nationwide search for the killer. Soon a trail of more bodies emerged. Was a serial killer at large? Could it be the same man who had attacked Rachel?" -- Publisher.
