Through him, they'll live forever. His creation will be a testament to their perfection--and to his skill. Each victim has a rare innocence, worthy of being immortalized in his macabre work of art. A beauty worth killing for. . .
Detective John Stallings can't avoid getting drawn into his latest investigation. The parallels between the Jacksonville girl who just disappeared and his long-vanished daughter make every discovery a potential clue in his own painful mystery. Then one by one, bodies are discovered--all young women, strangled to fulfill a madman's obsession. . .
What began as a missing persons case has become a desperate race to find and stop Stallings' most ruthless adversary yet. And the closer he gets to the answers, the more there is to fear--from a killer whose bloodlust is growing by the day, and a truth too terrifying to face. . .
