Raffi Yessayan is the author of a previous novel 8 in the Box. For eleven years he worked as an assistant district attorney in Boston, where he was chief of the Gang Unit. He recently left the DA’s office to go into private practice as a criminal defense attorney.

His new novel is a chilling and twisty thriller that mixes edgy psychological suspense, hard-boiled realism, and staccato bursts of pulse quickening action. When a pair of college students turn up bizarrely slain, homicide detective Angel Alves fears that a serial killer is stalking Boston. That fear becomes fact when Alves’s ex partner recognizes the murders as the work of the Prom Night Killer.
