NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From Tess Gerritsen, bestselling author of the Rizzoli & Isles series, her stunning first thriller! A beautiful young woman’s corpse is found dumped in a garbage-strewn alley. Now laid out in the office of medical examiner Kat Novak is an unidentified body that betrays no secrets—except for a matchbook clutched in one stiff hand, seven numbers scrawled inside. When a second victim is discovered, Kat begins to fear that a serial killer is stalking the streets, using a deadly drug to do his dirty work. The police are skeptical. The mayor won’t listen. One of the town’s most prominent citizens, with a missing daughter of his own, is also Kat’s chief suspect. As the death toll rises, Kat races to expose a deadly predator who is close enough to touch her. Praise for Tess Gerritsen “[The author] has a knack for creating great characters and mysterious plots that seem straightforward but also dazzle with complexity and twists.”—Associated Press “[Gerritsen] has an imagination that allows her to conjure up depths of human behavior so dark and frightening that she makes Edgar Allan Poe and H. P. Lovecraft seem like goody-two-shoes.”—Chicago Tribune “One of the most versatile voices in thriller fiction today.”—The Providence Journal Previously published as Peggy Sue Got Murdered From the Paperback edition.

The lands of Moura and Parenadra have seen dangerous times before, but always had the dragon riders to defend the justice of the world. But one rider turned to darkness, and slowly the people who once faithfully looked to the skies in times of trouble began to doubt the loyalty of riders. Now as the evil queen known only as Amora rises to control the world, with the dragon riders exiled from the people who once loved them and living in hiding, there is no one to defend when armies sweep Moura. But hope is found when the riders are called again by their brethren to return, and a new king is found to a once-powerful nation all but lost. And hope is found in an unlikely king who once dreamed of riding the skies on a dragon of his very own. When his wish comes true, Daniel Sage and his dragon Leafwing (with a fiery attitude despite an inability to create fire) set off on a quest to defend their world from certain doom. Along the way they befriend nymphs, battle giant birds, and learn that you must become who you were always meant to be-- even if its the last person you want to. But darkness lies before Daniel. His parents die, he must leave behind his sister, and he must face the terrible truth-- that Amora holds a shocking connection to him.
