Experience a new kind of terror. Meet Simon. This highly intelligent and deceptively charming physical therapist loves to touch people: Inflicting pain through aggressive manipulation helped the healing process. Simon has a secret calling. He believes that God has given him absolute authority to purify his unholy victims through a ritual that ends in grisly crucifixions. Driven by twisted religious beliefs and guided by his dead mother, very much alive in his subconscious mind, Simon abducts chosen ones and holds them captive in a Room of Redemption. There, the victims helplessly await deliverance. In this breakneck-paced, exquisitely horrific thriller, Detective Sami Rizzo is assigned to head a task force investigating serial killings in San Diego brutal murders unlike anything the city has ever seen. Detective Rizzo urgently yearns to solve the case and gain the respect of her male colleagues, but her determination to apprehend the killer on her own clouds her thinking. When Simon outsmarts Rizzo, determined to make her his next victim, she must employ all her resources both physical and intellectual to beat the villain at his own game."
