Someone is killing women in the Chelsea nieghborhood of Manhattan - but, who? The only clues: a signature heart carved into each victim's breast (inside, the initials "J.C." and those of the deceased); copies of the New Testament (with underlined passages referring to infidelity); and fingerprints of a juvenile arrested in the 1960s. On the case is Matt Davis, a plodding but effective NYPD homicide detective who is addicted to fly fishing - and chocolate.

Young girls are coming through a pastoral Upstate New York fishing village - but, they aren't all coming out alive! Following a close brush with death as an NYPD homicide detective, Matt Davis has taken early retirement, and accepted a position as Chief of Police in a small, rural Upstate New York village. While out fishing on his favorite stream, he stumbles across the remains of a body, barely recognizable as human, killed approximately six months earlier.
"My first Matt Davis, now I have to read the rest."
When the body of Maggie McFarland, an 86-year old widow, is found among the rubble of the once-famous landmark Artemis Hotel, leveled by fire nearly 70 years ago, residents of Roscoe are shocked.

For it isn't a heart attack that has felled her; nor has she suffered a stroke or taken a fatal fall from a porch. Her life has not ended so uneventfully.
