A mentally deranged murderer has escaped, a fugitive running away from justice—New York to Florida, Texas, and New Mexico—leaving a host of brutally slain innocents behind.
Henson is hot on the trail, leaving her post as Captain in the Asheville P.D. to reenter the field.
But the Battered Women’s Underground keeps getting in her way, and a mysterious man is following the fugitive. Who is the man and what does he want? Why is the Underground helping the escaped fugitive?
Henson is determined to find the killer, and she digs deep, using novel techniques to set and spring her traps.
