This #1 New York Times bestseller will take you on a thrilling ride as investigator Lacy Stoltz follows the trail of a serial killer who turns out to be a sitting judge.

The book starts with Lacy investigating a corrupt judge who was taking millions in bribes from a crime syndicate. She was able to put those criminals away, but only after being attacked and nearly killed. Three years later, and approaching forty, she is tired of her work for the Florida Board on Judicial Conduct and ready for a change.

Then she meets a strange woman named Jeri Crosby, who is so afraid she uses multiple aliases. Jeri’s father was murdered twenty years earlier in a case that remains unsolved and has grown stone cold. But Jeri has a suspect whom she has become obsessed with and has stalked for two decades. Along the way, she has discovered other victims.

The suspect, a cunning serial killer, is always one step ahead of law enforcement. He is brilliant, patient, and knows the law like the back of his hand. To make matters worse, he is a judge in Florida, under Lacy’s jurisdiction. He has a long list, with the names of his victims and targets, all unsuspecting people unlucky enough to have crossed his path and wronged him in some way.
