Detective Caitlin Hendrix desperately wants to apprehend a murder suspect who has resurfaced after more than 20 years. The murders are reminiscent of the killings that sent her father over the edge when he was a detective on the case.
“The Prophet” terrorized the Bay Area in the 1990s and now it seems he is back. But where has he been for 20 years? Why did he stop killing and then start up again? Why is he sending her “messages” through his ritualistic killings?
Caitlin’s father begs her to stay away from this case. It caused him to lose his career. But she is determined to find the killer who is terrorizing a city.
This psychological thriller was inspired by the never apprehended Zodiac killer. CBS is said to be adapting this book into a TV series.
