A Promise of Ruin


CUYLER OVERHOLT

FROM THE BOOK JACKET:

What evil lurks around the steamship piers and in the hidden dens of New York City?

As Dr. Genevieve Summerford watches from the docks, the body of a young Italian woman is pulled from the East River, dampening the city's Independence Day festivities. Although the police suspect random violence, when Genevieve is asked to help find another young Italian woman who's gone missing, she wonders if something more sinister might be afoot.

Desperate to find the missing woman before she too meets a grisly end, Genevieve must rely on all of her skills as a psychiatrist--both to understand the mind of a cunning predator, and to help the victims he's left behind. But none of her training can prepare her for what happens when she herself is captured, bringing the case much closer to home than she'd ever anticipated.
