Melanie May liked her job as a small town cop. When she is faced with her first murder, however, shes swept into a case that will change her life.

This murder brings Melanie into contact with Connor Parks, an FBI profiler who is about to lose everything because of the one case too close for him to solve. Melanie comes to Connor for help in proving that a series of seemingly accidental deaths is actually the work of a serial killer.

Melanie is lauded for her brilliant theory, but as the two work together to solve the case, things get hairy. As the pieces of the puzzle come together, Melanie realizes the picture in the profile is very familiar.

Ms. Spindler delves into numerous topical and exciting themes and masterfully pulls them together into a great read. (Mar., 512 pp., $5.99)
