Where her daughter had played Gretel in front of a cheering audience, only two faint stage lights remained. The theater was deserted and eerily silent; the only sound she could hear was her own heart, pounding in a frenzy against her chest. She rushed outside and stopped sharply at the top of the stairs, stunned, her blood turned to icicles.

Or give in to the demands of the parents and assist with the ransom payment? The odds of finding Paige alive drop with every passing second, and making the wrong choice would seal her fate. Her blood would be on ...

As intensity increases, DCI Chambers must fight to stay focused and follow the investigation wherever it leads. Even if that's into the dark heart behind London's carefully manufactured façade.

But he knows he must move quickly. All evidence suggests the depraved killer will surely strike again. Soon…
