One killer is bad news.
Two is a living nightmare.
Homicide Detective Jessie Talbot is no stranger to murder scenes, but nothing could have prepared her for two in a row. When a second killer leaves a familiar mark beside his victim, the investigation escalates to impossible new heights.
The Homecoming King and The Teacher seem to be working together, making a display of their victims and causing panic in the city. While Jessie tracks them down with the help of an unusual ally, the killers are busy lining up their next victim with only one thing on their minds: they want it to go public, and they'll do anything to make that happen.
Jessie Talbot is a tough, sassy cop with unending dedication to her job. The contrast between her personal and working lives draw the reader into a brilliantly dark world of crime, making for a perfect entry to the serial killer genre.
