Daniel Davis and Ben Greene are running in the North Forest Wildlife Preserve.  Ben takes a breather while Daniel finishes the run until he finds the burned remains of a human.  A retired profiler, Daniel struggles with a panic attack while near the old depot for law enforcement.

 

Florida Department of Law Enforcement agent Samantha Michaels leads the investigation.  She and Daniel have worked together on cases before the academic retired as a hermit hiding in the woods.  A second body is found with the same M.O. of  being burned alive.  Daniel believes the psychopath is performing a fiery sacrificial ritual.  As the residents of nearby Bayshore and Pine Key Island panic, the predator continues the fiery deeds with Daniel and Sam trying to end the Burnt Offerings to the God of fire.

 

While John Jordan takes a respite from bloody inquiries (see The Body and the Blood, Flesh and Blood, Power in the Blood and Blood of the Lamb), Daniel and Sam prove more than competent to run their own superb investigation.  Action-packed, the killer’s commentary enhances the gripping storyline with insight into the stunning motive.  Fast-paced from the first Burnt Offering, fans will relish this strong serial killer thriller.
