A small Georgia town erupts in panic when a young college professor is found brutally mutilated in the local diner. But it's only when town pediatrician and coroner Sara Linton does the autopsy that the full extent of the killer's twisted work becomes clear. Sara's ex-husband, police chief Jeffrey Tolliver, leads the investigation -- a trail of terror that grows increasingly macabre when another local woman is found crucified a few days later. But he's got more than a sadistic serial killer on his hands, for the county's sole female detective, Lena Adams -- the first victim's sister -- want to serve her own justice. But it is Sara who holds the key to finding the killer. A secret from her past could unmask the brilliantly malevolent psychopath .. or mean her death.

Professional reviews

"Arriving late for a lunch date at a diner in her hometown of Heartsdale, Georgia, pediatrician and coroner Sara Linton discovers local college professor Sibyl Adams in the restroom, raped and slashed. Sara is unable to save her, and becomes drawn into the investigation with her ex-husband, Chief of Police Jeffrey Tolliver. It soon appears that a serial rapist/murderer is at work, and suspects abound, including a possible link to Sara's past. Judith Ivey's expressive narration does full justice to the story, and her regional accents are always on point. Her vocal characterizations are effective and believable, and her pacing enhances the suspense. It's easy to listen to and hard to turn off. M.A.M. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
