In a thriller that pits her against the most evil mind she has ever encountered, forensic examiner Eve Duncan returns to confront a serial killer who seems to be toying with her. When a senator's daughter is found murdered, her body drained of blood, Eve is drawn into the web of Kevin Jelak, a killer with vampiric habits who is already on a short list of suspects in the disappearance of Eve's own daughter Bonnie. And after Eve discovers a blood-stained goblet in her refrigerator, she knows Jelak's game has begun in earnest.
