The urge to kill is inside us all...

FBI Agent Lucas Madden knows this better than anyone in the world. As a neuroscientist he discovered patterns in the DNA of the most notorious serial killers in history- Bundy, Gacy, Dahmer and many others. He ultimately joined the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit, and is currently stationed in the New Orleans field office, close to his childhood home, where he hopes to heal broken family ties.

But when a new psychopath- the Snow White Killer- begins terrorizing the same stretch of the Gulf Coast where his mother was murdered some two decades ago, he'll be forced to confront his painful, tragic past. And his only chance to end the psychopath's reign of terror in the present may lead Madden to the terrifying discovery of just exactly what happened to his own mother all those years ago...
