Nothing like this had ever happened in his county. The smell of death hung in the air as the South Georgia summer heat and humidity began to rise. Several murders, a prominent lawyer with a sex addiction, a suicide, and a séance all combine to rock Sheriff Wilson’s world. Bodies are popping up, not just in Braley County, but all over the country. Women are posed with hands in a praying position. They are all found in the water. Is this a move to cleanse the victim? Or is it more sinister- an attempt to destroy the trail of evidence?Wilson’s approach to investigation is reckless and could well result in destruction of many lives in the county. Wilson didn’t know it yet, but the body was in the water too long. The process of identification was nearly impossible. No clothes leaving nothing to trace. The trail of evidence was nearly gone. Or was it? The victims missing finger found at the bottom of the river had a ring with initials. Was this enough to go on or would the trail end as an unsolved murder? When other bodies with a similar modis operandi begin to surface in other parts of the country the trail of evidence presented too much similarity to the Braley County case to ignore.Was this a lone deranged killer, or is this a serial murder case? Over Wilson’s objections, Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s chief profiler, Garner Lee Jackson, joins the case, along with the exceptionally attractive and bright criminologist, Dr. Joanna Whitmire. Wilson does not like Jackson nor is he willing to accept the advice of more seasoned investigators. This puts Wilson on an irreversible course of conflict with his Chief Deputy, Billy Daniels and the rest of the investigative team.If you are a fan of the many popular crime scene investigation series now playing, the shows featuring forensic criminology, or those whose focus is the workings of a criminal mind, you will certainly enjoy this read.
