Riverdale homicide lieutenant Andy Sinnott and Connie Kelly, head of the police department’s Missing Person’s Bureau, investigate the disappearance of more than twenty young women over a four-year period. Every other month, as regular as clockwork, another overweight woman between the ages of twenty and thirty is reported missing. Andy and Connie think they have time before the next disappearance to try to stop the rash of break-ins and homicides occurring in wealthy neighborhoods, but they are tragically wrong. The man who abducts women from the streets and shopping malls of Riverdale has plans for Connie Kelly and Lorraine Evangelista. Can Andy solve the mystery and catch multiple murderers before the love of his life meets a fate worse than death?
