(From the publisher):
On a remote island off the coast of Seattle, a man lies buried alive. Miles away, his captor--the elusive killer known only as Mephisto--listens through a transmitter to his victim's dying screams, waiting for him to reveal a secret only he knowns. But learning the secret is only the beginning of Mephisto's manical game...
Tracking the madman are two detectives. In Canada, Superintendent Robert DeClercq, a man who has experienced horror up close. In America, Jenna Bond, a young detective who has never known true horror--until now.
Together they will uncover a trail of clues that will lead them to Mephisto, and into the bloody past in which he exits. Because there the most terrifying secrets are buried, lying amidst the bones of the dead...
