New Hampshire Cold Case Investigator, Mark Atkinson, is but one of several active duty investigators working in the cold case squad of the New Hampshire State Police. He has worked long hours to catch a notorious killer who leaves no witnesses, no obvious motives, no forensics, no obvious pattern, no nothing. Then an inspiration, a breakthrough, casts new light on many cases languishing in the unsolved backlog of the cold case units of Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont. A pattern emerges, memories stirred and suddenly all indications are there has been a serial killer on the loose for many, many years, and perhaps the unthinkable, the killer may still be actively killing. Astonishing discoveries, unexpected breakthroughs, amazing profiling, dogged detective work and divine intervention merge into a crusade for long overdue justice.


What People Say

A brilliant novel illustrating the heartbreak of cold cases. This book chronicles a relentless investigation, playing cat-and-mouse game to solve a backlog of murders. A tristate investigative effort is focused upon brining closure to long suffering families, and justice for the victims as well as society. But then again, is it really finished?
