No stranger to the destructiveness of twisted minds, former FBI Special Agent Sloane Burbank never expected evil to invade the lives of her family . . .
When her mother is viciously attacked in her posh Manhattan apartment, Sloane realizes this was no ordinary robbery. The thieves came for something special--willing to brutalize, even kill for it, if necessary--and though it's clear Sloane's father is somehow involved, he isn't talking. Then a mysterious message left for the respected art dealer sets Sloane on a dangerous course to uncover a deadly secret hidden in her father's past . . . while carefully guarding secrets of her own.
A sadistic, power-mad monster is focusing his attention on the people Sloane cherishes, and not even Special Agent Derek Parker, the man she loves, can help her. She alone must uncover a shocking truth before time runs out.
Because suddenly a killer is tightening the noose . . .
