Kayleigh Towne is a beautiful and successful singer-songwriter, and Edwin Sharp is her biggest fan. When she replies to one of his fan letters with 'XO', Edwin is convinced she loves him, and that her latest hit song 'Your Shadow' was written for him.

Soon after, one of the crew is horribly murdered. Kayleigh's friend Kathryn Dance, a special agent with the California Bureau of Investigation, knows that stalking crimes are not one-off occurrences, and, sure enough, more verses of the song are played as warnings of death to follow. With a little help from forensic criminalist Lincolyn Rhyme, Dance must use her kinesic and investigative skills in an attempt to find the killer before more people die.

The last time Lucas Davenport travelled from his home in Minnesota to New York City, it was to help his friend, NYPD detective Lily Rothenburg, catch a serial killer who was terrorising the streets of Manhattan. So it's no surprise that Lily would ask him back to consult on another difficult case - this time, one she can't entrust to her fellow NYC cops. Teaming up with New York's finest forensic mind, the irascible and brilliant Lincoln Rhyme, and Lincoln's partner Amelia Sachs, they set out to investigate the deaths of four young women, all illegal Mexicans, all of whom seem to be connected to the drug trade. The problem is: the killings may not be cartel hits-they may be carried out by corrupt cops. Or, as the veteran investigators will soon discover, they could be dealing with a very different kind of killer-and to draw him out, Lily and Amelia will have to pose as bait.

When a sadistic hacker, code-named Phate, sets his sights on Silicon Valley, his victims never know what hit them. He infiltrates their computers, invades their lives, and lures them to their deaths.
