Part murder mystery, part dark marital drama, this latest thriller from James Grippando mixes together the tale of a serial killer dubbed Cutter (because he mutilates his victims with a machete and dumps them in the fields owned by a sugar company), and the missing wife of Abe Beckman, a prosecutor with the Miami State Attorney's Office.

Called in to monitor the investigation of the killer's latest victim, Beckman soon has another problem of a more personal nature on his hands; his new wife has gone missing. Finding himself under suspicion for Angelia's disappearance because of the recent marital problems the couple had encountered, the attorney has more on his plate than anyone should have to deal with.

The media senses a sensational story, his friends begin to doubt him and even those closest to him begin to think there could be some serious doubts about Beckman's involvement in the disappearance. Also, how is all this connected with the sinister Cutter?

That's a good question and one you'll find the answer to as you read this gripping novel that forces you to sift through a labyrinth of lies, secrets and unexpected manipulations.
