Most of her, anyway. Her head is still missing.
Lieutenant CDS Vincent D'Agosta knows his investigation will attract fierce media scrutiny, so he's delighted when his old acquaintance FBI Special Agent A.X.L. Pendergast is assigned to the case.
But neither man is prepared for what lies ahead. A diabolical presence is haunting New York City and Grace is only the first of many victims to be murdered... and decapitated.
As mass hysteria sweeps the city, it will take all of Pendergast's skill and strength to unmask this most dangerous foe ― let alone survive to tell the tale.

The killer, known in the tabloids as The Dealer, is baiting the police into a deadly guessing game that has the city increasingly on edge. Following her instincts, the tenacious cop in charge of the case turns to an unlikely ally – Dylan Reinhart, a brilliant professor with a keen insight into the criminal mind whose book turned up in connection with the murders.
As the tabloid frenzy over The Dealer reaches fever pitch, Dylan and Elizabeth must connect the clues to discover what the victims have in common before The Dealer runs through his entire deck.

Dit is 1987 en die 19-jarige Leon Labuschagne is ’n tronkbewaarder by Pretoria Sentraal Gevangenis en werk bedags as laksman. Hy word in hegtenis geneem vir die moord op sewe lede van die Diepsloot-karatespan na ’n voorval van padwoede. Hierdie moorde vind plaas op die laaste dag van ’n uitmergelende paar dae waarin hy 32 mans gehang het, 21 in die voorafgaande 72 uur. Die verantwoordelikheid val op sy “hotshot” prokureur, Johann Weber SC, om met ’n verdediging vorendag te kom wat sy kliënt van die galg sal red – hierdie keer as ’n gevangene wat teregstaan op moord. Hy stel ondersoek in na die 32 mans wat gehang is (werklike gevalle in die SA regsgeskiedenis). En dis hierdie SA geskiedenis wat Chris Marnewick in sy boek inwerk. Weber is ’n driftige teenstander van die doodstraf, en kom algaande agter onder watter traumatiese omstandighede die jong Leon elke dag gewerk het in Pretoria se berugte tronk: hy het oor die jare vriende geword met die gevangenes terwyl hy uiteindelik ook deel moes wees van hulle teregstelling. Soos die hofverrigtinge vorder, bied dit aan Johann die kans om die hele stelsel van halsmoorde onder verhoor te neem. Hy vra die vraag: Hoe kan iemand ’n dubbele rol van vriend en laksman speel, as ’t ware die herder en ook die wagter wees?
