A New York restaurateur, Millie Graff, is followed home from work by a man who forces her into her apartment and tortures her before killing her. She is found with her hand wrapped around a silver cross on a necklace. She's been gagged, sexually violated and then skinned alive. As Quinn and his associates follow the path of the killer known as 'The Skinner', another woman's desperate search for the truth will bring her into the crosshairs of a killer with a burning desire to settle old scores. Quinn and Pearl must rush to Missouri to confront the monster before yet another life is lost. Praise for John Lutz: "Lutz has produced another procedural masterpiece." ("Booklist"). "A page-turner to the nail-biting end, the fifth Frank Quinn investigation will leave readers breathless...Misleading clues and dramatic suspense will keep readers pondering the intricacies of this twisty, creepy whodunit long after the last page is turned." ("Publisher's Weekly" starred review).

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul Varner | 2/12/2014

    " Great detective thriller with an effective format of converging plots. Strong characters like Frank Quinn, Pearl, Fedderman, Sherif Wayne Westerly,etc....chilling accounts of the "serial" murders that made you want to finish the book and "make sure the sadistic bastard was caught" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jay | 1/29/2014

    " It started off slow but once it picked up it was was great lots of twists! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erika Van | 1/18/2014

    " I am going straight to the library to look for the first two books in this series! So good, the characters, the suspense, the creepy, gory details... how this author has escaped me up to now I do not know. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terri | 1/17/2014

    " A brutal serial killer is targeting women who have previously mis-identified their rapists. Quinn & Associates is hired by NYC to help in the investigation. This is truly a horrifying killet. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 1/9/2014

    " A very good thriller read with lots of twist and turns. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lianne | 1/4/2014

    " I quite enjoy serial killer plots, and although the protagonist in this one was a bit gruesome, the book stands up well to others in the genre. It's well detailed, both in the plot and characters, and although there sometimes seems a bit too much happening with sub-plots, twists and dead-ends, it all links up well and adds depth and suspense to the story. There are a few things that stop if from being really great, there doesn't seem any great urgency to track down the killer, and there's a lot of detail given to some elements of the crimes that are just forgotten about by the end of the book, but that apart, very enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kay | 1/2/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book in the Frank Quinn series. His books are always a page turner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Luann | 11/23/2013

    " I enjoyed this one much more than the previous book in the series. Good, creepy serial killer with a twist. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christian Cashelle | 11/8/2013

    " This is one of the longest books I've read in a while but I could not put it down. The suspense of it all and how everything came together for Quinn and his team was very entertaining and interested. I loved how it went back to the source of everything. Great job! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ricardo | 10/26/2013

    " This book was a great read. Good pace, interesting plot, and a nice twist at the end "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Blakely | 10/25/2013

    " I was on a cruise, so had LOTS of time to read. And I read this one in one day. I probably would have given it five stars if I just hadn't read another book by John Lutz two days before. But if you like serial killers then he is your author! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mandy | 9/22/2013

    " Nasty descriptions and it dragged after awhile. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cindy | 6/8/2013

    " This was a captivating book; however, the ending left me cold. It was so far fetched, it pretty much ruined the rest of the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jimblankenfeld | 6/4/2013

    " Great book, can't wait until the next one due out in June 2012 (allegedly). "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jill | 9/25/2012

    " Overall, this book was okay. It didn't get good until toward the end where it everything made sense. This series the Frank Quinn is a little predicatable and sometimes unexpectedly good. I never really know what to expect when I read this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike Schneider | 8/28/2012

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marca | 7/1/2012

    " Meh. Lots of red herrings or "McGuffins" that were not tied up in the end. But kept reader guessing. "
