About the Book
Delilah Price is way out of her comfort zone. To make ends meet, she's had to take a job as a substitute teacher at a middle school in Brooklyn, which means she has less time for her work as a sculptor. But that's nothing compared to everything else going on in her life.
On her way to the school the morning of her first day on the job, Delilah witnesses a teenage girl falling to her death from a subway platform. Several witnesses claim she was pushed. The girl turns out to be a student at Delilah's school.
Meanwhile, her relationship with Detective Patrick Quick has taken a step forward and a few steps back. Patrick has been consumed with tracking down a serial rapist. Now there appears to be a copycat rapist...and he's targeting women in Delilah's neighborhood and social circle.
Susan Israel's second riveting mystery continues the story of one of the most intriguing new heroines in the suspense genre.
