Catherine Ferry, who is a forensic odontologist working for the FBI, has inexplicably started getting panic attacks and blackouts when facing the most recent victims of a series of brutal murders. As she is suspended from the task force and returns to her Mississippi hometown, she finds out that her father might not have died as she was told, and decides to investigate. The events of her personal investigation in Mississippi start connecting with those of the serial murders in New Orleans, and she starts figuring out that those panic attacks she was having were actually symptoms of repressed memories of her childhood in which bloody incidents took place.
This book, as all other books by Greg Iles, is a must. It is a real page-turner, and regardless of what other things you might have to do, you won't want to put it down until you finish it. I think Mr. Iles has a gift for developing realistic, nail-biting psychological thrillers, and he definitely knows how to get the reader stuck to their seats till the very end! My highest praise for this book.
