Someone is killing young girls in New York. Horrific murders where the bodies are being mutilated and parts harvested for unknown reasons.
Detective Jake Chandler has a mystery on his hands, and even though there seems to be a connection to the Russian artist.
Avgustin Juniper, Juniper himself seems innocent and as confused as everyone else as to what is happening.
So why is Juniper painting all the murdered women, and what is stalking the artist? Something wants to return … something which was also known to Pablo Picasso … and only Chandler can stop it.
“A novel that is dark, disturbing, and utterly tremendous entertainment.” Ken Bruen
“Confidently blends the supernatural and the Gothic with the crime novel. Satisfyingly gruesome; genuinely spooky.” Mike Ripley
“Stone’s trademark imagination runs riot as the traditional spooky chiller meets hardcase crime head-on. Intriguing, smart and very entertaining.” Paul Finch
