Dr. Dylan Reinhart and Detective Elizabeth Needham–now known to audiences from the top-rated CBS series–reunite to stop the most sinister plot against New York City since 9/11.
As the terrorist attack unfolds, Elizabeth Needham does something courageous that thrusts her into the media spotlight. She’s a reluctant hero. And thanks to the attention, she also becomes a prime target for the ruthless murderer behind the attack.
Dylan literally wrote the book on the psychology of murder, and he and Elizabeth have solved cases that have baffled conventional detectives. But the sociopath they’re facing this time is the opposite of a textbook case. There’s no time to study for the test he’s about to give them. And if they fail, they die.
