Ezekiel "Coop" Cooper discovers his daughter, Bette, dead in his weekend getaway cottage. The positioning of her body suggests a ritual killing. Her devastated father is a former NYPD detective forced into retirement by cancer. The cancer may be in remission, but his cop instincts are not. After beginning his own investigation, he is contacted by writer Deni Green, who believes that Coop's daughter was the latest victim of a serial killer who has also hunted in Florida and the Pacific Northwest. His interest piqued, Coop forms an uneasy alliance with Green, who hopes to write a true-crime account of the case. When Coop learns the single detail that ties the killings together, it may be too late to save Cara Callahan, the sister of one of the New York victims and the woman who has given Coop hope for the future. Like Eric Clapton reinventing a familiar blues tune, Lutz, an award-winning master craftsman, takes a tired thriller formula and gives it fresh sizzle. Wes Lukowsky
