Detective Reuben “Diego” Montoya is back in New Orleans. Thanks to years of working with the dark side of society, his youthful swagger is gone, replaced by straightforward determination. He’ll need it, because a serial killer is turning The Big Easy into his personal playground. The victims are killed in pairs – no connection, no apparent motive, no real clues. Somebody’s playing a sick game, and Montoya intends to beat him at it. His only lead is the ex-wife of one of the victims. Abby Chastain is a woman haunted by painful secrets. Twenty years ago she watched in horror as her mother, a patient at the Our Lady of Virtues Mental Hospital, plunged through a window to her death. Abby has always dreaded that she too would one day go insane...especially now, back in this town, where she’s begun to feel watched, as if the devil himself is scraping a fingernail along her spine. Something about Abby – her spirit and her honest fear – gets to Montoya. His gut tells him his prime suspect is innocent, just like it’s telling him there’s something significant about the once-grand hospital now decaying in a gloomy thicket of ancient live oaks. Abby Chastain can help unlock the mystery – if only Montoya can get her to trust him enough to face the ghosts of her past. As more bodies are found in gruesome, staged scenarios and the FBI moves in, Montoya’s in a desperate race to find a killer whose crimes are getting more terrifying, and closer all the time. Plunging deep into a nightmare investigation will uncover a shocking revelation – a deadly connection between Abby and Montoya and an asylum where unspeakable crimes were committed, evil once roamed free, and a human predator may still wait. For the past is never completely gone. Its sins must be avenged, its wrongs righted. And this time Detective Reuben Montoya may pay the price...

A serial killer is on the loose in New Orleans. Carefully selected yin and yang victims are killed in pairs, each crime made to look like a murder/suicide. Abby Chastain's ex-husband is the first victim, and the only lead seems to have something to do with her mother's death at a mental hospital twenty years earlier. Streetwise Detective Reuben Montoya continues to dig for clues while the bodies stack up. Joyce Bean is at her best, narrating the story with flair and conviction. Never reaching too far for a male voice nor overdramatizing the building tension, Bean provides just the right balance for this exciting thriller.
