August 1999. Assistant Commissioner Florence Lovelady attends the funeral of Larry Glassbrook, the convicted murderer she arrested thirty years earlier. As she tries to lay her ghosts to rest, Florence is drawn back to the Glassbrooks' old house and is chilled by the discovery of another effigy, one bearing a remarkable resemblance to herself. Is the killer still at large? Is Florence once again in terrible danger? Or, could the fate in store be worse than even her darkest imaginings?
