The heart of the city is being gutted by a ritualistic serial killer and the police have hit a wall. Dirk, a private detective, is thrust into the maniac's world by a mother's desperate plea. A tragic mistake leads the killer toward his next victim: a girl with ties to the investigation. Now Dirk and his quirky team of problem solvers must race against the clock to find the killer before the next victim is claimed.
A private investigator, his friend, a cop, and a specter named Victor are all that stand in the way of a madman and his next victim.

Any additional comments?
I really appreciated the author's description of the afterlife - the potential for difficulty in letting go. There are several scenes of characters attempting to process the grief of losing their high school aged children that spoke true. Mr. Nowak went beyond the stereotypes to make each character's processing believable if not always sympathetic.
