Jack Till, a retired LAPD homicide detective, is now happy to take routine cases as a private investigator. But when a murdered girl's parents ask for his help, Till can't say no.

Till must enter the secretive world of online escorts, decoding ads placed by women who are always on the move, often using false names and other women's pictures. But the perpetrator is more dangerous than Till ever imagined. As the body count rises, Till must find a ruthless seducer whose murderous spree masks an even deadlier agenda.
