EX-FBI star profiler Jefferson Winter is no ordinary investigator.An eccentric genius and self-described geek with a passion for Mozart,he’s haunted by the legacy of his notorious serial killer father… and not likely to admit this may be why he has such a phenomenal insight into the psychology that drives the criminals he hunts.The former G-man is now a sought after freelance consultant,jetting around the globe helping local law enforcement agencies with their thoughest cases.When detective Inspector Mark Hatcher calls from Scotland Yard about a particularly disturbing case,Winter leaves his native California for the chilly streets of London to help trace down a sadistic serial kidnapper.Four victims,all women,all tortured and then lobotomized.None of them able to tell the police the name of their attacker.None of them able to live normal lives again.Just broken dolls,played with then discarded.When another young woman goes missing,Winter has to race against the clock to identify the attacker and find the latest victim before it’s too late.
