Beth dropped off their six-year-old daughter at the youth center one
afternoon, and no one has seen her since. Her disappearance comes just
as FBI profilers are called in to examine a bizarre emerging pattern of
brutal serial murders that rocks Seattle. The FBI dubs them "bookend
killings, " as the killer seems to be striking his victims in pairs:
first two men, then two women. The victims are unrelated, yet within
each pairing, one mirrors the other in chilling detail. .
But this is just the beginning of the nightmare for Gus. Soon Seattle
police fashion a theory that leaves two horrifying possibilities:
Either Beth is the killer's latest victim ... or she is his willing
As the gruesome murders continue, and with Beth's whereabouts still

she's gone does Gus realize just how far apart they've grown. Slowly,
Gus begins to unravel the shocking truth about the woman he thought he
knew. Beth may be alive. She may or may not be innocent. She may have
come up against something far more evil than just a serial killer. And
for Gus and his family, that evil is far too close to home. .
