Back Cover / Inside Flap:Death is reporter Jack McEvoy's beat: his calling, his obsession. But this time, death brings McEvoy the story he never wanted to write - and the mystery he desperately needs to solve. A serial killer of unprecedented savagery and cunning is at large. His targets: homicide cops, each haunted by a murder case he couldn't crack. The killer's calling card: a quotation from the works of Edgar Allan Poe. His latest victim is McEvoy's own brother. And his last...may be McEvoy himself."


Review:Jack McEvoy is rocked beyond belief by the supposed suicide of this brother, a homicide cop who was obsessed with the murder of a college co-ed. After losing his sister years before, Jack suffers even more so with losing his brother - his twin. He sets out to discover why his brother would have turned to suicide, but what he finds is a far different story. Now on a mission to restore his brother's name and catch his brother's killer, he sets off on a journey that will take him around the country. Along the way, he'll need the support of many police departments as well as one of the highest policing agents in the land: the FBI. The incredibly huge spree of crimes that is uncovered will keep you hooked as a reader...and sitting on the edge of your seat as the killer is finally unmasked. I highly recommend this novel.
