Forensic psychiatrist Sylvia Strange has pried into the minds of the world’s most notorious killers. Now she faces a little girl so frightened she cannot speak-and cannot reveal the crimes that have driven her into Sylvia’s arms. In the ancient beauty of the Southwest, Sylvia searches for clues that will reveal the silent child’s identity, desperate to unravel the shadowy lies that surround her. For a demon is drawing ever closer to Sylvia and the child.
