When her fiancé is senselessly murdered only a few weeks before their wedding, young Hailey Dean turns to the law to fight back in the only way she knows how.
Years later, Hailey is a tremendously successful criminal prosecutor in Georgia, well-known for never losing a case. No one gets away with murder on her watch. But the years of trials and the endless parade of victims silently looking out at her from crime scene photos and autopsy tables begin to take their toll on her. And then eleven prostitutes are murdered one by one in the back alleys of Atlanta.
A conviction is made-but Hailey knows it will be her last. Still grief-stricken and disillusioned with her profession, Hailey decides to leave Georgia for New York City; she hopes the change of pace and surroundings will finally let her find peace.
Transplanted to a lively, vibrant city where she has no ties and no painful reminders, Hailey embarks on a new career as a therapist. But just when she's beginning to feel settled in her new life, another tidal wave of turmoil engulfs her: Her patients are dying, brutally murdered in the same way as the eleven women in Atlanta. Clearly, Hailey hasn't left her past behind after all-and unless she returns to her true calling and solves the case, still more innocent people will die. Unless the killer gets to her first . . .

From Publishers Weekly
Themes from Patterson's popular adult titles When the Wind Blows and The Lake House waft through this YA thriller, the author's first in the genre. Wood stars as Maximum Ride, 14-year-old leader of a band of kids who have escaped the lab where they were bred as 98% human and 2% bird (wings being a key component) and developed a variety of other-worldly talents.
In Patterson's unusual universe, Max and her young cohorts are soon forced to rescue one of their own—a girl named Angel—from a pack of mutant wolf-humans called Erasers. Wood nails Patterson's often adult-beyond-their-years dialogue with a jaded tone. But the result of this pairing makes Max sound more off-putting than cool or intriguing. The listening experience is stalled in the starting gate, keeping the action-adventure earthbound rather than high-flying. Ages 12-up. (Apr.)
