Summary

Summary

An FBI profiler tracks a brutal killer through San Francisco, and the key to the case may lie on Alcatraz Island, in this thriller by a national-bestselling author.

When an elderly woman is found raped and brutally murdered in San Francisco, Vail heads west to team up with SFPD Inspector Lance Burden and her former task force colleague Detective Roxxann Dixon.

As Vail, Burden, and Dixon follow the killer's trail in and around San Francisco, the offender continues his rampage, leaving behind clues that ultimately lead them to the most unlikely of places: a mysterious island ripped from city lore whose long-buried, decades-old secrets hold the key to their case. Alcatraz. The Rock.

It's a case that has more twists and turns than the famed Lombard Street . . . and a novel that Clive Cussler calls "a powerful thriller, brilliantly conceived and written."

He achieved prominence as an Agreed Medical Examiner, and was subsequently appointed to the position of Qualified Medical Evaluator by the State of California. He has extensive experience testifying as an expert witness, which has exposed him to the many strengths and weaknesses of the judicial system. Dr. Jacobson lives in Northern California.
