Twenty years ago, John Costello''s life as he knew it ended. He and his beautiful girlfriend, Nadia, became victims of the deranged "Hammer of God" killer who terrorized Jersey City throughout the summer of 1984. This murderer went after young courting couples in an attempt to "save their souls." Nadia was killed by the first blow of the hammer. John survived, but was physically and psychologically scarred to an extent that few people could comprehend. He withdrew from society, hid in his apartment, and now only emerges to work as a crime researcher for a major newspaper.
Damaged as he may be, no one in New Jersey knows more about serial killers than John Costello. So, when a new spate of murders starts--all seemingly random and unrelated--John is the only one who can discern the complex pattern that lies behind them. But could this dark knowledge threaten his own life?

Annotation:
New York police Detective Ray Irving has only one thing on his mind: finding the psychopathic, copy-cat creep who recently killed a 15-year-old and a journalist and is sure to strike again. Whoever it is has taken as their modus operandi the meticulous imitation of a different "famous" serial killer for each murder. Irving will take whatever information he can get, and interestingly, a lot has been coming from John Costello. A serial-killer autodidact, Costello himself survived a murderous attack back in 1984. The incident left his girlfriend dead and left him seriously damaged. Irving can't do without Costello's knowledge, but soon the detective begins to wonder if Costello knows just a little too much.

Praise

"Ellory is skilled at cinematic narratives and has an overt passion for old movies. This novel brandishes his filmic consciousness." - Barry Forshaw 10/13/2009

"This is one of those police-procedural gems that come along once in a blue moon. The book is entirely free of the tired formulas that drive way too many procedurals and that often seem more oriented toward securing movie rights than telling a story." - Elliott Swanson 05/01/2010
