A Dead Lawyer
Eagle Creek, Louisiana. Lawyer Sam Galloway is burned alive in an apparently motiveless attack. The local sheriff's department calls in former FBI profiler Jefferson Winter to consult on the case.
A Serial Killer
So far there's just one body, but there are going to be more. A deadline has been set, the clock is ticking, and Winter has just thirteen and a half hours to track down the killer, before he strikes again.
A Dark Secret
Winter knows all about secrets. His father, one of America's most notorious serial killers, had everyone fooled for years. Winter also knows that the problem with secrets is that they have a nasty habit of turning against you when you least expect it.
