A young man is brutally ripped apart in a vacation cabin. His girlfriend turns up dead a week later. And the local police are frightened by the way she was tortured and murdered. Former Philadelphia cop Derek Sanderson is assigned what looks like a simple murder, until he gets the autopsy report back and realizes he is chasing a faceless monster who will stop at nothing to satisfy his twisted needs. Sanderson is the only cop who can see the one simple clue the serial killer leaves behind. But he is used to doing things his way and bending as many rules as possible to get his job done. This time his impulsiveness may backfire on him and not only leave him out in the cold but also leave a clear path for the killer to take away someone he is very close to. The Quickening is a heart-stopping thriller that will keep you turning the pages, as Sanderson unveils one desperate clue after another. In a bone-chilling finale, that will have you checking the locks on your doors, Sanderson must track down the madman before it is too late.
