Abstract:

San Francisco, 1906. The great West Coast city is a center of industry and excitement– and also, to many, of sin. When the Great Earthquake hits, some believe it is the day of reckoning for the immoral masses. Meanwhile, twelve-year-old Shane Nightingale is witness to the violent deaths of his adoptive mother and sisters– not from the earthquake, but at the hands of a serial killer. As Shane wanders the city appearing to be just another anonymous orphan, he keeps what he has seen a secret. But when his path crosses that of Sergeant Randall Blackburn, who is in pursuit of the killer, the two become an investigative team that will use both a youth's intuitive gifts and a policeman's new deductive techniques and crime-fighting tools to unmask a vicious murderer whose fury can be as intense as that of Mother Nature herself.
