The youngest lawyer ever to grab the helm of Seattle's most prominent law firm, Gus Wheatley has found successas well as money, power, and prestige. He thinks nothing can interfere with his meteoric rise to the top. Until his wife, Beth, vanishes.
Beth's disappearance coincides with a series of brutal murders the FBI dubs the "bookend killings." They think Beth is the killer's latest victim . . . or his willing accomplice. But Gus knows his wife would never ally herself with a coldblooded killer. The further he searches, however, the more he discovers that Beth isn't the woman he thought he knew.
Beth may be alive. She may or may not be innocent. She may have come up against evil far more reaching than a serial killer. And for Gus and his family, that evil is much too close to home.
