Scott Finn worked his way out of Boston's toughest neighbourhood to become a rising star in the city's most elite law firm. When the body of Natalie Caldwell, one of his closest colleagues, and former lover, is found floating in Boston harbour - her heart surgically removed from her chest - it appears she is the seventh victim of `Little Jack', the Jack-the-Ripper-style murderer terrorizing Boston.
But police detective Linda Flaherty isn't so sure. With Natalie's death, Finn inherits a coveted, high-profile assignment that could clinch his career: one involving a terrorist train bombing. But as Finn learns more about the circumstances surrounding Natalie's death, the fabric of the life he has created begins to tear. Suddenly he finds himself the prime suspect in her murder.
Finn needs to save himself, and the only way is to dig into the secrets of Natalie's life. The case leads Finn and Flaherty from the crime-ridden streets of Charlestown to Boston's courtrooms and morgues, and from the gilded enclaves of the power brokers to the darkest recesses of a serial killer's mind.
