Women are dying with pentagrams carved on their faces. Satanic ritual or cunning deception?
Forensic psychologist Megan Rhys is called in to help police investigate what they believe is a ritual killing. She feels that prejudice is taking the inquiry in the wrong direction and she is suspicious of the media-obsessed police chief in charge of the case. As more women die - and as the press, the police, her boss and her own family turn on her - Megan stakes everything on finding the killer. Second in the Megan Rhys crime thriller series.
