Anne Frasier: The Body Reader

Vigyázat! Cselekményleírást tartalmaz.

For three years, Detective Jude Fontaine was kept from the outside world. Held in an underground cell, her only contact was with her sadistic captor, and reading his face was her entire existence. Learning his every line, every movement, and every flicker of thought is what kept her alive.

After her experience with isolation and torture, she is left with a fierce desire for justice—and a heightened ability to interpret the body language of both the living and the dead. Despite colleagues’ doubts about her mental state, she resumes her role at Homicide. Her new partner, Detective Uriah Ashby, doesn’t trust her sanity, and he has a story of his own he’d rather keep hidden. But a killer is on the loose, murdering young women, so the detectives have no choice: they must work together to catch the madman before he strikes again. And no one knows madmen like Jude Fontaine.

    “This might be the most disturbing thing I’ve ever seen.” Uriah made an anguished sound as he stared down at the charred, headless flesh. “Standing here, looking at this? Makes me thankful I don’t have kids. The world’s gone to hell. And right now, at this moment, I want to walk away. Just get in the car and drive. Go up to the Boundary Waters, maybe. If you’ve never been, you should go. Maybe we should do that right now. Drive up to Ely, rent a canoe.”

    “Are you afraid?” he asked. “Is that what’s really going on? Because fear is nothing to be ashamed of. Fear will keep you alive. Lack of fear? That’ll kill you. You were attacked. You found a head in your helmet. I mean, come on. That’s some messed-up stuff.”
    At least he didn’t say it had happened on top of everything else. “I am afraid,” she said. “But not for the reasons you think. We have a girl who might be dead because of us. That scares me.”
    “We were doing our job. Being a cop means collateral damage.”
    “I’m not one of those people who thinks one or two deaths is worth it as long as you save twenty lives in the process,” she said. “One death is one too many. One death is unacceptable and unforgivable. And a young girl—a young, sixteen-year-old girl? We should have put a watch on her.”
