Homicide detective Taylor Jackson thinks shes seen it all in Nashville—but shes never seen anything as perverse as The Conductor. Once his victim is captured, he contains her in a glass coffin, slowly starving her to death. Only then does he give in to his attraction.
Later, he creatively disposes of the body by reenacting scenes from famous paintings. Strangely, similar macabre works are being displayed in Europe. Taylor teams up with her fiancé, FBI profiler Dr. John Baldwin, and New Scotland Yard detective James Memphis Highsmythe—a haunted man who has eyes only for Taylor—to put an end to The Conductors art collection.
Has the killer gone international? Or are there dueling artists, competing to create the ultimate masterpiece?
