Investigator Jessica Niemi is in a race against time in this electrifying novel from the New York Times-bestselling author of The Witch Hunter.
A young woman's corpse washes up on a near-frozen Helsinki beach, dressed in a manga costume. At the same time, two famous Instagram influencers go missing from the city, and Jessica is thrown into the darkest case of her career.
Jessica discovers that all three have ties to a cult whose forms of worship involve unspeakable acts of cruelty and violence. As she finds herself hunting the truth about the murder and disappearances, an old threat emerges...
