Pulaski doesn't have a clue what the codes mean. But she knows someone who will. Darcy O'Bannon is a 26-year-old whose autistic savant skills are perfect for unraveling the thinking of Vegas' most savage serial killer, peering into a numerological mystery that stretches back hundreds of years.
With her own life one spark away from going off the rails, her department turned against her, and the lives of those she cares most about in jeopardy, Pulaski hunts for dangerous prey in the shadow of the Strip - with herself as the perfect bait. The incomparable William Bernhardt brings to life America's most fascinating city and invites us to join one woman's fight to stay sane, stay alive, and keep a killer from making the most shocking score of all.
More mayhem? This novel is a sequel to William Bernhardt's Dark Eye.

"The ghastly puzzle comes together in a breathtaking, suspenseful finale." (Publishers Weekly)
Please don't waste your credit. The 'good guys' are worse that the 'bad guys'. The story line is totally insipid, and the characters are weak and stupid. You will find yourself wishing that the killer will kill everyone in Vegas, then turn the gun on himself so that no one will ever have to suffer through this authors pitiful return of any of these characters. My only regret is that I have to give it a 1 since there is no 0 possible.
I found the story line so far-fetched it was hard to maintain interest. However, the narration was great. Don't recommend it unless it's on sale.
I couldn't even finish this book. It drove me nuts. The writing is awful, the dialouge is stilted, and events are totally unplausible. Plus the reading, oh my gosh, torture. Every man sounds the same, a whiny, false bullish-ness. A total waste of money. I wish I could return it.
