The year is 1911. Chief Investigator Isaac Bell of the Van Dorn Detective Agency has had many extraordinary cases before. But none quite like this.
Hired to find a young woman named Anna Pape who ran away from home to become an actress, Bell gets a shock when her murdered body turns up instead. Vowing to bring the killer to justice, he begins a manhunt that leads him into increasingly more alarming territory. Anna was not alone in her fate--petite young blond women like Anna are being murdered in cities across America.
And the patterns go beyond the physical resemblance of the victims--there are disturbing familiarities about the killings themselves that send a chill even through a man as experienced with evil as Bell. If he is right about his fears, then he is on the trail of one of the greatest monsters of his time.

Cussler and Scott have written another wonderful page-turner. This is historical action-adventure fiction at its rip-roaring best! Library Journal (starred review)
As always in this series, the novel is very exciting, with excellent pacing and some very well-drawn characters. Cussler is a perennial A-lister, popularity-wise, and his Isaac Bell novels are the pick of his prodigious litter. Booklist
The Isaac Bell series is a fun jaunt into America s past and the books are a wonderful examination of life in the early twentieth century. Associated Press
