A middle-aged woman is found beheaded in the bedroom of her suburban home. But another shocking surprise awaits Illinois State Special Agent Elizabeth Hewitt and her partner Jen Spangler: the woman’s estranged husband is found in his home, as well—murdered in the same gruesome fashion. Hewitt soon learns that this crime is not just a grisly vendetta leveled against one estranged couple. Because another estranged husband and wife have been discovered beheaded as well. And this won’t be the last. A killer’s secret ceremony has begun. And Hewitt’s been invited to stop it.
Sheldon Rusch is an advertising executive as well as a yoga instructor. This is his first novel.
Praise for the Novels of Sheldon Rusch“An appealing heroine…an unexpected conclusion.”—Rocky Mountain News“This excellent first novel offers a modern-day rendering of old horrors.”—Library Journal“What’s new is the ghoulish care in recreating canonical nightmares…prose worthy of Poe. An obvious candidate for its own Edgar.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
