Description

Maverick FBI special agent Tess McCallum (nicknamed “Super Fed” by an adoring media, the central investigator in previous novel Next Victim) is back, and she has got a new partner—one she does not want and does not trust. She is chasing a vicious kidnapper known as the “Rain Man,” who leaves his victims chained up in a vast storm drain system underneath Los Angeles, doomed to drown unless their ransom is paid on time, and only by the City of Los Angeles, to his off‑shore bank account. A freelance security agent named Abby Sinclair, who specializes in putting stalkers behind bars, often by extra‑legal means, has already had her hooks in the case for a while and is working for a woman who may have been targeted—and who does not trust the authorities to protect her. Since a rainstorm has already started, the time available to save a woman’s life is very brief—and there are already two dead victims to demonstrate the high cost of making mistakes or even just being too slow to act. Only by working together can the two investigators piece together the clues to help them figure out who (and maybe even how many people) the killer really is. Nail‑biting suspense, unexpected story twists, and surprise piled upon surprise all work together to deliver an irresistible read and an incredible page‑turner of a story.

From Publishers Weekly

Dec 13, 2004 – As in many of Prescott's previous books, this psychologically complex thriller features a serial killer who's all the more terrifying because of his basic ordinariness; he's Everyman, twisted. The two protagonists are familiar, too: maverick FBI special agent Tess McCallum (nicknamed "Super Fed" by an adoring media) from Next Victim, and even more freewheeling freelance security agent Abby Sinclair from The Shadow Hunter. The two stubbornly independent women make a compelling, if unlikely, team. While the killer's identity is no secret he's a vicious kidnapper known as the "Rain Man" who leaves his victims in storm drains to drown unless their ransom is paid on time Prescott's flair for unexpected plot twists keeps the suspense breathtakingly high to the last chapter. Why does the Rain Man insist on payment from the city of Los Angeles, instead of victims' families? How can he have access to so much insider info without inside help? Will the two loner agents stop the killer before offing each other? The likable protagonists and Prescott's tightly wound plot keep the reader hooked and guessing and hoping for another matchup of these two heroines, should they survive.
