FBI Medical Examiner Dr. Jessica Coran and Inspector Richard Sharp have been enlisted to spearhead the investigation of a series of crucifixion murders - a bizarre rash of ritual killings in London's underground.
The madman has left a trail of carnage unequaled in the history of serial crime. But he has also left no clues to his identity, or to his unfathomable motive.
It begins as a terrifying challenge for Coran and Sharpe. What it becomes is an invitation to enter the deep abyss of a killer's mind, a chilling dare that will draw them closer than ever to the nature of evil and the rapture of death at the dawn of a new millennium.
