The woman's body was found behind New York's Metropolitan Museum, strangely and savagely mutilated- the first in a series of bizarre murders that share an eerie similarity to the Toltec Indian ritual of human sacrifice. Stanislaus Rolk is a cop they call the scholar of murder. He may have a met his match in this insanely brilliant and obsessed murdererand, perhaps, in beautiful Kate Silverman, a young, frightened museum curator who could either be a prime suspect- or a prime candidate for the killers blade. This chilling, edge-of-the-seat thriller follows the bloody trail of a madman as he creeps in the street shadows, waiting to stalk his next female victim for a sacrifice to a bloodthirsty god

Interesting. All the clues are here, but I still did not realize who the killer was.
