A celebrity mogul's bodyguard is slain in his boss's luxurious penthouse at an exclusive Manhattan address. At NYU, a sophomore is menaced on the Internet, stalked . . . and murdered.
The two cases, equally sordid and shocking, end up falling to NYPD homicide detective Ellie Hatcher and her partner--who soon find out that this is just the tip of a terrifying iceberg.
Because in the city that never sleeps, death doesn't either.
