A serial killer is loose in Richmond, specialising in attractive young couples whose bodies are invariably found in the woods months later - minus their shoes and socks. After months of exposure to the elements, all that remains of the killer's victims has in every case left Chief medical Examiner, Dr Kay Scarpetta unable to determine an exact cause of death. Frustrated that her high-tech forensic skills have apparently proved useless and pressured by the latest victim's influential mother - Kay enlists the help of an ace crime reporter and a psychic whose powers have been vouched for by the FBI. Racing against time, Kay finds she must draw upon her own personal resources to track down a murderer skilled at eliminating every clue. All that remains to her now is her courage and intuition - and the will to stop a killer before he can strike again.
