Penguin Putnam
A shattering new novel of suspense from the acclaimed author of For Edgar.

His debut novel For Edgar was named by Kirkus Reviews as one of the Ten Best Mysteries of 2005, and hailed as "prose worthy of Poe." In The Boy With Perfect Hands, the Hollywood Reporter found "plenty of chances to shiver." Now, Sheldon Rusch returns to plunge his brave protagonist, Illinois State Special Agent Elizabeth Hewitt, into a new series of crimes, each more shocking than the last. Estranged couples are being beheaded by someone with a twisted agenda-a violent secret ceremony, to which Hewitt has been invited.

A middle-aged woman has been discovered beheaded in the bedroom of her suburban home. Even more shocking to Illinois State Special Agent Elizabeth Hewitt is that not only was her head cut of, it was missing. An attempt to talk to the woman's estranged husband yields another startling surprise for Hewitt and her partner, Jen Spangler. He, too, is found dead in his home, lying amid the flowers in his perfectly tended garden murdered in the same gruesome fashion.
Then an old wedding photo of the victims is sent anonymously to the local newspaper - perversely altered as a sick joke. But Hewitt's about to learn that this crime is not a just grisly vendetta leveled against one estranged couple. Because now another disillusioned husband and wife have been beheaded as well. And this won't be the last. A killer's secret ceremony has begun. And Hewitt's been invited to stop it.
