"I'm in trouble, Liz. I've uncovered something.... They're watching...."
That panicked message on her answering machine is the last time Liz Ames hears from her sister Rachel, pastor of Paradise Christian Church in Key West, Florida.

Then a teenage girl whom Rachel was counseling is brutally murdered. The ritualistic style of the killing is hauntingly similar to that used by the notorious "New Testament" serial killernow on death row.
Could the murder be related to Rachel's disappearance? Is a copycat killer at work? And why do the police refuse to help?
For answers, Liz turns to Rick Wells, a former cop who worked the fringes of the "New Testament" investigation. Together they peel away layers of deception to reveal a terrifying adversaryand the unspeakable evil at the heart of this island paradise.
