The killer has left behind a clue connecting the two cases to FirstDate.com, a popular online dating service, and Flann McIlroy, an eccentric, publicity-seeking homicide detective, is convinced that only Ellie can help him pursue his terrifying theory: Someone is using the lure of the Internet and the promise of love to launch a killing spree against the women of New York City." "To catch the killer, Ellie must enter a high-tech world of stolen identities where no one is who they appear to be. And for her the investigation quickly becomes personal. She fits the profile of the victims, and she knows firsthand what pursuing a sociopath can do to a cop - back home in Wichita, Kansas, her own father lost his life trying to catch a notorious serial murderer."" ;
