Richard Rosenwood knows how to commit the perfect murder. A Professor of Criminology, this popular, mild-mannered academic is an expert in the motives and methods of the world’s most infamous serial killers. But the disturbing facts he teaches his students become lessons of his own, for Richard Rosenwood is plotting the perfect murder—something that needs a victim and a scapegoat.

Klaus Irga is the perfect scapegoat. As one of the deadliest serial killers to plague America in recent history, he is ravenous, vicious and has been given the nickname The Wolf because his victims simply vanish without a trace—no flesh, no skin, no bones.
