“Persons has shattered the thriller mold.” —John SandfordA deer hunter tracking his wounded prey through the Minnesota woods gets much more than he bargained for when he makes the grisly discovery of a young girl’s body. The condition of the corpse is shocking: The girl had been pregnant, but the fetus was removed from her womb and an inverted pentagram drawn on her forehead. After the girl is identified as the daughter of a high-powered Senator, the FBI is called in to find the murderer—and the missing baby. The case becomes increasingly complex as Bernadette and Tony’s personal relationship heats up, and the investigation is hampered by the many lies that lead them on a circuitous—and deadly—route to the truth. Through dogged police work and Bernadette’s unique powers of second sight, they close in on the killers on a frigid night in the snowy woods in an effort to save the tiny victim of the toughest crime they’ve ever solved.
Terri Persons, a former reporter and freelance magazine writer, lives in the Midwest with her husband and two sons.
