For five years Seattle has been seized in the terrifying grip of a monster as black as evil itself: a sadistic serial killer who methodically lures his victims to grisly deaths in order to satisfy a twisted passion. For five years journalist Anne Jeffers has pursued this horrifying story like a woman obsessed - following the killer's capture, trial, and appeal - crusading to keep the wheels of justice churning toward the electric chair, never believing the prisoner's steadfast denials of guilt. Now the day of execution has come. A convicted killer will meet his end. Anne believes her five-year nightmare is over. Until, within days, a similar murder stuns the city, forcing Anne to face some disturbing questions. As the murderer stalks his next victims, creeping ever closer to her, Anne cannot help but feel an icy unease, a haunting sense of connection to these unspeakable crimes. And, relentlessly, she hears the eerie echo of the dead man's last words to her: "Today won't end it. How will you feel, Anne? When I'm dead, and it all starts again, how will you feel?"
