Drawn into their fold is Judge Deborah Knott, who is overseeing the distribution of property in the bitter divorce between two Nordan artisans. After gruesome violence suddenly strikes the homestead, Judge Knott must quickly untangle the darkest twists of the human heart to stop a killer-a remorseless fiend who will stop at nothing to continue a dark saga of old sins and new blood."; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall
