Sean King and Michelle Maxwell are already investigating a crime involving an aristocratic and dysfunctional Southern family, but when they're deputized to help in the serial killer hunt they realize the two cases may be connected. Adding to the tension is the appearance of a second killer, this one imitating the murders of the first.

An excellent mystery - lots of action. Baldacci doesn't usually disappoint his audience.

It's a good book but I didn't think it was one of Baldacci's best. It seemed to go on and on much longer than it had to

Very much enjoyed the 1st in this series (Maxwell/King) but am having trouble slugging through this (2nd) one. About half way and entertaining abandoning them to their fates
