The thriller that launched lawyer Kate Lange into the hearts of a million readers—and into the hands of a serial killer.


How far are you willing to go to stop a serial killer?

Haunted by the death of her sister and wounded by her ex-fiancé’s accusations, lawyer Kate Lange throws herself into her new career at a high-powered law firm.

When the grandmother of a lonely private school student seeks her counsel, Kate thinks it’s just another custody case. But then the teen is brutally murdered. And it isn’t only Kate who wonders if her legal advice led to the girl’s death.

Put on notice by Randall Barrett, the firm’s charismatic managing partner, Kate must fight for her career, her reputation–and for redemption.

Unwilling to live with the damage she may have caused, Kate pursues the case on her own and unearths some chilling facts. Facts that lead straight to the heart of a legal conspiracy. Facts that lead Kate directly into the surgically skilled hands of The Body Butcher.

For fans of John Grisham, Patricia Cornwell, James Patterson and Tess Gerritsen.

James Rollins, #1 New York Times Bestselling author

“…this debut novel by a member of the Nova Scotia bar is one utterly complete, complex and convincing book that has one hooked from the first line…while this is a thriller, well-written and with a great plot, it is one that defies categorising. While the mystery may be medical with sophisticated and high technology required to improve lives, it’s dark and dangerously suspenseful…”
