Deep in the heart of a heartless city... She could have been any homeless, nameless young woman trying to escape Seattle's mean streets. Except the sixteen-year-old who stumbled into the shelter that night was missing a lot of blood, and something even more vital... Somewhere between life and death... For police woman Daphne Matthews, it was bizarre enough to call on the best cop she knew... especially when a search turned up more than she knew... especially when a search turned up more mutilated corpses. For ex-homicide detective Lou Boldt, it was the kind of case he couldn't resist. And for Elden Tegg, healer, only path to salvation... and immorality... Lurks the angel maker. And now, as the body count rises, tow cops try one last, desperate ploy. But they'd better start praying. Because it will take a miracle to stop a killer who's about to make one final, unforgettable contribution to humankind... From the Paperback edition.
