Publisher's Summary

In the tradition of Mary Higgins Clark comes this deliciously written woman-in-jeopardy novel from a wonderful new talent. Zoe, a single mother with an adopted daughter, discovers that one of her neighbors could be a serial killer. Someone is busily dismembering Philadelphia's terrified nannies. Zoe and a mysteriously scarred detective named Nick Stiles together try to prevent the murderer from striking again, but the killer has targeted Zoe.

The writing was tight; the dialogue crisp; and the plot, while sporting many loopholes, still kept me interested. I've never heard of the author before, but definitely someone to watch for. A good listening experience.
