"An intricate thriller that begins with a missing girl and ends up in unexpected territory" from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of If You Tell (RT Book Reviews, 4 stars).

A schoolgirl found it on a nature hike. A severed human foot wearing pink nail polish. A gruesome but invaluable clue that leads forensic pathologist Birdy Waterman down a much darker trail—to a dangerous psychopath whose powers of persuasion seem to have no end. Only by teaming up with sheriff's detective Kendall Stark can Birdy hope to even the odds in a deadly game. It's a fateful decision the killer wants them to make. And it's the only way Birdy and Kendall can find their way to a murderer who's ready to kill again . . .

Very interesting story I think I will read the next installment. ( )

I listened to the Audiobook version, nine hours. There are many characters in the book. I should have made a list. I was somewhat disappointed in what I thought was a lack of detail in the last chapter and epilogue. ( )

This was an interesting read - interesting in that I am not sure I liked it ... but there is enough that I might pick up #2. ( )
