FBI agents Dillon Savich and his wife, Lacey Sherlock, are in the middle of a frightening case involving two psychopathic killers and a series of ghoulish kidnappings, when trouble hits on the home front. Dillon's younger sister, Lily, has been injured after crashing her sports utility vehicle into a giant redwood tree and, if Dillon is to believe Lily's father-in-law, the crash was no accident. But was it another suicide attempt, the second since Lily's daughter was killed by a hit-and-run driver just seven months ago? Convinced that fast answers could save Lily's life, Dillon and Lacey race to California's Hemlock Bay, and what they find proves shocking even to them.
Unbeknownst to Lily, her latest "accident" is part of a twisted plot to steal from her eight valuable paintings bequeathed to Lily by her famous grandmother, artist Sarah Elliott. When Lily leaves Hemlock Bay, taking the paintings with her, it doesn't take long for art broker Simon Russo to spot four of the paintings as forgeries. So where are the originals?
That's what Lily and Simon are determined to find out, following clues that will take them from prestigious Washington, D.C. galleries to New York, back to Hemlock Bay, and across the globe to Switzerland, where a notorious collector holds the secret to the missing paintings -- and Lily and Simon's fates -- in his hands. And this time, they're on their own, as Dillon and Lacey are called back into action to catch a killer whose terrifying powers exceed anything the FBI agents have ever encountered anywhere in this world.
