The dark terrain of a psychopath's mind...

FBI Agent Lucas Madden knows the territory better than anyone in the world. As a neuroscientist he discovered a pattern in the DNA of the most notorious serial killers in history. He ultimately joined the FBI's Behavior Analysis Unit and is currently stationed in the FBI field office in New Orleans, close to his childhood home.

But he will have to confront his painful, tragic past when a psychopathic killer begins to terrorize the same Mississippi countryside of his mother’s unsolved murder more than two decades ago

Now, a new murderer—the Snow White Killer—is terrorizing women along the Mississippi Gulf Coast. When Mara Bliss, Madden’s former fiancée, is kidnapped, the FBI agent must track down a killer who is always two steps ahead. Only by entering the killer’s mind will Madden ultimately understand the twisted and terrifying rationale behind the murders—and have a chance at ending the psychopath’s reign of terror.
