The only female detective on Miami PD's homicide division, Joe Frye has memories that haunt her and a past not even her lover, Louis Kincaid, truly knows. It began when Joe was an ambitious rookie cop in a small Michigan town called Echo Bay. The bones found in the woods were the first clue in a string of brutal murders of young women. Plunged into a heated investigation, and caught between a local sheriff and the state police, Joe must face down a predator who has chosen her a worthy opponent—or become his next victim.
