A serial killer is on the loose and he draws inspiration from the Bone Collector, another cold-blooded murderer! This killer's methods are terrifying. He stalks the basements and underground passageways of New York City. A professional tattoo artist, he tattoos his victims' flesh with mysterious and cryptic messages. But instead of using ink to create his designs, he uses a lethal poison which results in a painful and agonizing death. NYPD detective Lincoln Rhyme and his associate Amelia Sachs, who had worked on the Bone Collector case, were drafted in to investigate the killings. They have little evidence but a series of cryptic messages left etched into the skin of his victims. Rhyme and Sachs race against time to nab the killer before he strikes again. Will they be able to untangle the mystery before more people die?
