Detective Rick Baptiste moved to Bayou Black, Louisiana to get away from the senseless violence that seemed to plague the city of N’Awlins. After years of working homicide in N’Awlins, Detective Baptiste saw how truly twisted the human mind can be. Now that same evil seems to have infiltrated this peaceful town he has been calling home these last few months.
At first it was just reports of young women going missing. Now with the discovery of the latest victim’s body he is convinced they are dealing with a killer who has no intentions of stopping.
Who among the citizens of Bayou Black could be doing this? The deaths of these young women are much later than when they were reported missing. Where are they being held? What makes him kill them after a certain period of time?
And to make matters worse for Detective Baptiste the Assistant District Attorney Kathryn Bryant starts making demands on the case. The woman is just as headstrong as she is beautiful. In his mind that’s a dangerous combination. If she is here it can only mean trouble.
