"He reached into his black bag, where the syringe lay waiting. Roll over, he told the girl. Dutifully, she rolled onto her side, her small body tense and barely trembling, for a moment, for just a moment, he had second thoughts. She was, after all, pretty. But then it was as if he was back in his aunt's garden, with Max the dog staring stupidly up at him. He eased the needle into her hip. The syriinge was filled with water and air, the two basic elements of life. He relished the irony--saw and almost beautiful symmetry at work here.
And God breathed life into Adam. But what God gives, God can take back."
Retirees moving to Florida are mysteriously disappearing without a trace. Across two continents a genius killer leaves a sinuous trail of bodies by no clues. And in New York an elderly former private eye uncovers a horrific conspiracy that a lifetime of battles could not prepare him for. Compelled to investigate, William Riskin will entere a seething cauldron of lies and secret...and confront a murderous force born in the fire and chaos of World War II.
