The bestselling author of When She Was Bad and Twenty-Seven Bones delivers his fifth nail-biting thriller, featuring FBI agent E. L. Pender as he faces his most terrifying foe to date. When troubled teen Luke Sweet is left orphaned and homeless, the court ships him off to a treatment program for juvenile delinquents in Humboldt County. Little Luke has a twisted past, though, and when several members of the group turn up dead, he quickly becomes the number one suspect. Agent Pender must track him down before anyone else gets hurt. But when clues about another psycho-killer surface, the case becomes much more dangerous-and deranged-than anyone thought possible.

About the Author:

Jonathan Nasaw is the acclaimed author of Fear Itself and The Girls He Adored, both Literary Guild Selections. He lives in Pacific Grove, California.

From Publishers Weekly:

Back in 1985, FBI special agent E.L. Pender, who was pursuing a serial killer case in California, helped take down Luke Sweet, killer and maker of snuff films. Sweet and his transgendered partner, Teddy Swantzer, didn't survive, but Sweet's 15-year-old son, Little Luke, did. In Nasaw's engrossing fifth thriller to feature Pender (after When She Was Bad), Little Luke tells his own horrific tale as he moves from one misfortune to another with a trail of bodies and a growing list of adults, including Pender, who must die. Now 25, Luke is presumed dead when an explosion destroys the asylum where he's incarcerated near Santa Cruz. Pender, alarmed when he hears of the murder of Luke's grandparents, returns to California to see if Luke survived. Nasaw throws a curve when a psychopath called Asmador begins going after the names on Luke's list. Pender is both hunter and hunted as he treks to a mountain retreat and a surprising climax. (Feb.)
