Special Agent Yoko Tanaka is one of the best profilers in the FBI. She’s observant, smart and professional, but doesn’t really play well with others. She’s been called in to consult on the case of ‘Valentino’, a killer who steals his victims’ hearts. Literally
With five women already dead, time is running out for the police to catch the killer before he strikes again.
Within twenty-four hours of Yoko’s arrival they have a suspect in custody: a precocious nineteen-year-old kid called Jefferson Winter whose IQ is off the charts. He’s also a textbook psychopath and the son of one of America’s most notorious serial killers.
Not only does he confess to the murders, he knows details of the crimes that only the killer could know. It’s an open and shut case. Or is it?
