Kathleen Doyle is on the trail of a killer who seems to be intent on handing out vigilante justice--killing those who, for one reason or another, have not paid the price for their crimes. But as she gets closer to the killer, other dangers lurk. Solonik has reared his head again, pulling Doyle into his web in unexpected ways. And Acton is acting...surprisingly distant, given his usual fascination with his new wife. With trouble on every front, all Doyle can do is soldier on and hope that her fine sense of intuition will be enough to save them all in the end.
