Detective Decland Dupree arrives at the crime scene, where the recipient of his first childhood kiss lies in a pool of blood. Not fifteen minutes later, the body of a man is found next door. The most sadistic serial killer in New Orleans history is on the prowl. He selects both a man and a woman, raping and killing them on the same night. When another woman from Deck's past is found and identified, the young detective is flooded with questions. How does this maniac know Deck? Why is the FBI deputy director sabotaging his efforts to capture the killer? And, most unsettling, who's next? As the Absinthe Killer continues to evade arrest, Deck is relieved of duty. But he's far from giving up-and, unfortunately for Deck, the FBI knows it.
