In this original short story from the New York Times bestselling thriller anthology FaceOff, bestselling authors Jeffery Deaver and John Sandford - along with their popular series characters Lincoln Rhyme and Lucas Davenport - team up for the first time ever. The last time Lucas Davenport travelled from his home in Minnesota to New York City, it was to help his friend, NYPD detective Lily Rothenburg, catch a serial killer who was terrorising the streets of Manhattan. So it's no surprise that Lily would ask him back to consult on another difficult case - this time, one she can't entrust to her fellow NYC cops. Teaming up with New York's finest forensic mind, the irascible and brilliant Lincoln Rhyme, and Lincoln's partner Amelia Sachs, they set out to investigate the deaths of four young women, all illegal Mexicans, all of whom seem to be connected to the drug trade. The problem is: the killings may not be cartel hits-they may be carried out by corrupt cops. Or, as the veteran investigators will soon discover, they could be dealing with a very different kind of killer-and to draw him out, Lily and Amelia will have to pose as bait.

You should have been a detective. If there's one thing the last year has proved, it's how good you are at finding things out. Not simple things. Hard things. Things that nobody is supposed to be able to find out. Things that are buried so deep nobody even thinks twice about them. The sort of things that turn people's lives inside out once they're exposed.'Meet Tony Hill's most twisted adversary - a killer with a shopping list of victims, a killer unmoved by youth and innocence, a killer driven by the most perverted of desires. The murder and mutilation of teenager Jennifer Maidment is horrific enough on its own. But it's not long before Tony realises it's just the start of a brutal and ruthless campaign that's targeting an apparently unconnected group of young people. Struggling with the newly-awakened ghosts of his own past and desperate for distraction in his work, Tony battles to find the answers that will give him personal and professional satisfaction in his most testing investigation yet.
