A small Nebraska town is terrorized by a serial killer who targets young “good” girls. The prime suspect disappears and may have himself become someone else’s victim.

The local Nebraska town newspaper hires Warren Steelgrave a best-selling novelist as an investigative reporter because of his unique insights and his uncanny instinct for finding the truth. More papers will be sold, and more eyes will be focused on the town’s plight.

In this third novel in the Steelgrave series, author and photographer Gary Smith takes us along another thought-provoking journey with surprising twists and suspense filled alleyways. Warren Steelgrave explores the psyche of an “undomesticated” killer. Unlike other serial who acts without remorse, an undomesticated killer believes killing is a natural state of being to nurture the soul; The same way as killing plants and animals’ nurtures and sustains life.  Warren soon realizes that he shares many traits with the killer. It is a fine line that makes his own “willingness” to do what is necessary be socially acceptable.

Warren’s romantic kindred spirit, Cindy O’Brien, has been living her life separate; writing songs and performing them across the country. She suddenly joins Warren in Nebraska to escape a deadly stalker. The readers of Smith’s first two books know that Warren will never leave that “stone unturned”.

The varied character plots intertwine as the story unfolds. The reader is challenged to confront their own human nature and how they might react given a challenge outside their moral comfort zone. This latest adventure has an ending that won’t be decided by a jury.
