A very young girl witnesses a horrible crime committed by a person in her family that should have loved and protected her. This event so warped this girl that she went on throughout her entire life committing crime after crime. Her murder weapon is not a knife or a gun. Her weapon is her knowledge of common plants that any of us might have in our garden. But the plants can kill if handled in the proper manner.

The girl, now a woman, has many names. It is amazing that she can keep track of who she is and who she has been and who she intends to be. She stalks women that are old and vulnerable. She befriends them and then when she has their confidence she takes kills them and takes over their identity. There is no great financial gain to be had in her method. She sells off anything of value and rents out whatever real property the victim owned. Then she moves on to the next victim. Just one mistake leads to her downfall.

She is forced to abandon one of the bodies in the woods due to her car breaking down. Now the police have discovered that body and the investigation begins.

Mark Lapslie is a detective on leave. He suffers from Synesthesia. Sounds turn into taste to Mark. For example, when his phone rings he tastes dark chocolate. The problem has caused a break up in his family. The everyday noise of family life is too much for Mark to handle. Now he is being called back to work. He has been contacted by DS Bradbury, a female officer. She is at the scene of a car crash and the crash of the car has caused the body that was left when the car broke down to be discovered.

Lapslie and Bradbury begin an investigation that leads them to some of the most horrific murders that can be imagined. But the investigation is not easy. Someone does not want them to catch the murderer.

This book is very different, exciting and horrifying. It is unbelievable how a person can be twisted so in their life to commit such violence against unsuspecting, trusting women.
