Publisher's Summary

Forensic psychologist Dr. Jack Carter wakes from a semicatatonic state in a mental hospital, with no memory of the previous year. His wife, Sarah, has disappeared, and as the last human being to see her alive, Jack is the prime suspect in her disappearance. Without a body, and with no physical evidence to prove foul play, the lead investigator and Jack's friend, Bill West, must continue to search for the truth even if it means fingering Jack for the crime.
When a serial killer in West Virginia's coal country claims to have killed Sarah Carter, Bill and Jack rush to the crime scene. What they find is a deeply disturbed man with no memory of his crimes or of taking credit for Sarah's death. As Jack tries to decipher the mysterious series of runic symbols the killer carved into his slaughterhouse, he unlocks a deeper cosmic mystery that goes beyond anything he could imagine.

Dr Jack Carter wakes up from a semi catatonic state to discover his whole world is upside down.
His wife is missing and he doesnt know where she is.
Even worse, he doesnt know if he can trust himself. Is she dead? Did he kill her?
Now he is on a quest for answers, and a great place to start is with a serial killer who says he killed Jacks wife. But things arent adding up, and Jack better figure out what is really going on before he goes to prison for the crime himself.
I give this book 5 stars. Its a suspensful and well written story that I enjoyed so much that I read straight through. I look forward to the next chapter in the series!
