Sloane Pearson is planning to leave her boyfriend, her father has been rushed to hospital and her job - as a detective in the Chicago police department sex crimes division - is taking all her energy. With her personal life in such a mess, she's not complaining. A serial rapist is terrorising young women, dragging them off the street and demanding they fight. The victims don't want to come forward and if they do, they've already taken showers which have washed away any crucial DNA evidence. Knowing that a conviction is near impossible, Sloane tracks every last clue - and every possible victim - until she's in far too deep . . . With empathy, pace and tension, Theresa Schwegel gets inside the minds of Sloane and the victims to view the case from every angle.
