On a frigid New Year’s Eve in
Minneapolis a young woman’s brutalized body falls from the trunk of a car into
the path of oncoming traffic. Questions as to whether she was alive or dead
when she hit the icy pavement result in her macabre nickname, Zombie Doe.
Unidentified and unidentifiable, she is the ninth nameless female victim of the
year, and homicide detectives Sam Kovac and Nikki Liska are charged with the
task of not only finding out who Zombie Doe is, but who in her life hated her
enough to destroy her. Was it personal, or could it just have been a crime of
opportunity? Their greatest fear is that not only is she their ninth Jane Doe
of the year, but that she may be the ninth victim of a vicious transient serial
killer they have come to call Doc Holiday.
Crisscrossing America’s heartland,
Doc Holiday chooses his victims at random, snatching them in one city and
leaving them in another, always on a holiday. If Zombie Doe is one of his, he
has brought his gruesome game to a new and more terrifying level. But as Kovac
and Liska begin to uncover the truth, they will find that the monsters in their
ninth girl’s life may have lived closer to home. And even as another young
woman disappears, they have to ask the question: which is the greater evil, the
devil you know or the devil you don’t?
