There appears to be a serial killer on the loose, and Chief Inspector Van Veeteren is called in to help the local police. In his storied career he has only left one case unsolved, but hes never before faced an ax murderer. As details surrounding the grisly murders are collected, Van Veeteren finds that there is almost nothing to go on; nothing links the two victims. But then theres another murder, and shortly thereafter one of Van Veeterens colleagues, a promising female detective, goes missingperhaps because the criminal knows she has come too close to the truth. . . .
