Ash Park, a run-down suburb of Detroit, might not be the most idyllic place to live, but for Hannah Montgomery, it’s safe. At least, it feels that way until a serial killer starts dicing up women from the shelter where she volunteers. Hannah manages to convince herself the killings have nothing to do with her brutal past—but then her boyfriend is murdered in the same ruthless manner as the others. And the police think she may have had something to do with it.
Zora Smyth is not your average poster child for a first year medical student with a distant mother, a missing sister, and a deep distrust of the police. All she’d ever dreamed of was to make it through medical school and become a surgeon. But a dissection gone wrong at the Gross Anatomy lab lands her in the middle of a murder investigation and in the crosshairs of an enemy set on burying her with murders.
