“A heart-thumping yarn from a real-life crime analyst.” —The Boston Globe
A pair of severed feet, stored in a portable cooler, has turned up in the house of a Federal judge in El Paso, Texas. With no clues as to the killer, the victim, or the intent, the local authorities are at a loss. Enter Magnus “Steps” Craig. As part of the elite three-man Special Tracking Unit of the FBI, Steps is renowned for his incredible ability to find and follow trails over any surface. He has a kind of synesthesia, allowing him to see whatever a person has touched in a unique color—what Steps calls “shine.”
While trying to grapple with the grotesque scene in El Paso, the Special Tracking Unit soon discovers another, earlier victim. Once again, only the feet in a cooler were left behind. With so few clues, Steps and his team find themselves enmeshed in the most difficult case of their careers. And the killing spree has only just begun. . .
“Kope brings a refreshing authenticity to his work.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Mark my words, ‘Steps’ Craig is poised to take his place among our most popular and cherished thriller heroes.”—Chelsea Cain, bestselling author of Heartsick and One Kick
