Homicide cop Vince Cardozo returns in another unstoppable thriller by the bestselling author of Privileged Lives.
For alcoholic former actress Leigh Baker, the moment will always be suspended in time: Seeing her daughter plunge to her death from the terrace of a sixth-floor apartment. Months later, the man responsible is convicted by a jury of his peers. Four years after that, he is out on parole. And one by one, those whose testimony helped put James Delancey away meet violent ends.
Manhattan doyenne Oona Aldridge is the first. She is found in the dressing room of a trendy Manhattan boutique, her throat slashed. As more grisly murders follow, NYPD cop Vince Cardozo assembles a task force to stop the serial killer dubbed the “Society Son of Sam.”
Is Delancey himself the culprit? With the city in a panic and Cardozo's attraction to Leigh threatening to undermine the investigation, he follows a twisting trail that exposes the sins and excesses of the rich and infamous…and a vendetta more chilling than anyone can imagine.
