ONE OF THE MOST ELECTRIFYING THRILLERS YOU’LL READ THIS YEAR WITH A TWIST YOU WON'T SEE COMING. Former Elite Police Source Handler, Detective Dove Milson, suffered a near-fatal attack during an undercover police operation that went wrong. She was left to struggle alone against gangland killers, and escaped with lifelong scars. Now she's joined the Major Crimes Team and is determined to prove she's still got what it takes. But her very first case is a chilling murder scene by the coast. A teenage girl is found murdered, encased in glass. The murder is a replica of the work of a serial killer known as the Glass Doll murderer, who entombed his victims in glass to watch them die. He would be the prime suspect but . . . HE'S ALREADY DEAD The kicker? Dove's own niece, Eden, was one of the original Glass Doll victims. When her other niece, Delta, goes missing, it looks like the copycat killer plans to repeat history in more ways than one. WILL SHE BE THE NEXT GLASS DOLL? Time is running out. Dove must race to catch a killer before it’s too late. Then a new lead tears a hole in the case and Dove finds her life in danger from a source she never considered.
