Called in for the grisly case, police inspector Paola Dicanti learns that another cardinal was recently found dead; he had also been tortured. Desperate to find the killer before another victim dies, Paola’s investigation is soon joined by Father Anthony Fowler—an American priestand former Army intelligence officer examining sexual abuse in the Church, who knows far more about the killer than Paola could possibly imagine.
As Paola and Father Anthony struggle through a maze of tantalizing clues, they begin to question whether someone in the Vatican is aiding their cause or abetting a murderer. And when evidence leads them to powerful figures within the Church hierarchy, their own pursuit of the truth may make them the next pawns to be sacrificed in a terrifying and deadly game.

With deft timing, Kate Reading captures serial killer Victor Karosky, sexual sadist and pedophilic priest. Her depiction of attractive Paola Dicanti, Italian inspector for the Violent Crimes Unit and FBI-trained profiler, is masterful in its careful pacing and understatement. When Dicanti is summoned to Vatican City after a cardinal's mutilated corpse is found, Reading portrays her anger in tones of outrage. As the story weaves the perspectives of perpetrator and pursuers with fine-tuned precision, Reading makes each character believable. With textured characterizations and energetic vocal manipulation Reading delivers a complex plot, intricate sexual and forensics scenes, and a multiplicity of characters This is one not to miss!
