Eileen Dreyer takes you into the dark corners and intense moments of the worlds she knows best: the ER and the Office of the Medical Examiner in St. Louis...
Molly Burke is a death investigator and trauma nurse for the city of St. Louis who has seen every type of atrocity and more than her share of heartbreak. And she knows that no good deed goes unpunished. For years she tried to save the abused children who came through her ER. She's learned that she can save some kids, but others will be lost to their horrific families. Now, a child she once tried to save is all grown up. His life was unspeakable. His deeds are now unfathomable. And he wants Molly's attention. A killer has been created and he will stop at nothing to make sure Molly Burke won't ignore him now. To make matters even more complicated, Molly's brother asks her to watch his sixteen-year-old son, who seems to have left a string of "incidents" in his wake, forcing her to face the fact that no family is without its secrets. Breathtaking, tightly plotted, and compelling, Head Games is a tour-de-force thriller that looks into the depths of the human heart and mind.

--St. Louis Post-Dispatch*
Molly Burke, death investigator and trauma nurse for St. Louis's Grace Hospital, has her own share of lifelong demons. It makes her the perfect candidate to help the troubled children who have passed through her ER over the years. So many of them Molly was helpless to save, so many disappearing back into their own private hells and never heard from again. But one of them refuses to be ignored. He's back with a vengeance. And he's willing to kill to get Molly's attention again.
"ONE UNEXPECTED REVELATION AFTER ANOTHER."
--Midwest Book Review
It begins when Molly receives a special delivery-a human bone etched in gold. It's a token of a serial killer's affection that escalates with even more grisly trophies, threatening letters, and a chilling promise of unspeakable surprises yet to come.
Molly's new charge-her own troubled 16-year-old nephew Patrick, who has come to stay with her-suddenly walks into the nightmare. Now as Molly searches the past for clues to a serial killer's identity, she's forced to face her own family secrets before a stalker with a deadly agenda strikes again.
"Eileen Dreyer is the next big thing in crime fiction...her name will be spoken in the same breath with Robin Cook, Janet Evanovich, and Patricia Cornwell. Get in on the ground floor and take the ride all the way to the top. Her prose is greased lightning."
