"Seventy-five years ago, a madman nicknamed the Torso Killer terrorized Cleveland... Overall, he was credited with more than a dozen murders. And he was never caught. Today, forensic scientist Theresa MacLean is called to an abandoned building where a desiccated, decapitated body has been found in a room that's been sealed off for years. Although there's no immediate proof, everyone assumes the same thing: that the newly discovered corpse was a Torso Killer victim... But then another body, this one recently deceased, turns up, and all signs at the scene seem to indicate the work of a new Torso Killer..."--from publisher description.
