This is my first Eileen Dreyer thriller and what a ride it was.
Molly, a 52-year old Vietnam vet, is an emergency room nurse in St. Louis who begins to get messages from a serial killer - likely someone from her past. The thing is, she isn't sure who it is.

With the help of her collegues and a love interest that Molly isn't sure she's interested in, Molly tries to piece together the mind of a killer in the hopes of discovering who it could be.

With elegant twists and turns, Dreyer's prose weaves a tantalizing tale of emotional disfuction, obsession and abuse into an intriguing novel that will keep readers turning the pages.

And Dreyer's technique - not so heavy on medical terminology that it gets dry - allows the author to join the plot and subplot with a twist at the end that will leave some readers gasping.

This review is deliberately vague because I don't want to give anything away. Dreyer is dead on in her description of a serial killer's thought processes and the measures law enforcement - and one desperate woman - will take to catch the killer.

This author writes some excellent dialogue. I can never really get into the character of Molly - she seems a little too perfect to me and I can never quite suspend my disbelief that someone like this actually exists. Still though the scenes make up for this small flaw

Molly Burke is a death investigator and trauma nurse for the city of St. Louis who has seen every type of atrocity and more than her share of heartbreak. And she knows that no good deed goes unpunished. For years she tried to save the abused children who came through her ER. She's learned that she can save some kids, but others will be lost to their horrific families. Now a child she once tried to save is all grown up. His life has been unspeakable. His deeds are now unfathomable. And he wants Molly's attention. A killer has been created and he will stop at nothing to make sure Molly Burke won't ignore him now. To make matters even more complicated, Molly's brother asks her to watch his sixteen-year-old son, who seems to have left a string of "incidents" in his wake, forcing her to face the fact that no family is without its secrets.
