Irene Kelly fights for her life in this blood-chilling sequel to the Edgar Award--winning smash hit Bones .

Despite her reporter's nose for trouble, Irene Kelly's life has almost returned to normal--the Las Piernas News Express wobbles along in defiance of its financial woes, and with the help of her husband, Frank, and a good therapist, she's recovered from the debilitating post-traumatic stress disorder that haunted her after her near-fatal encounter with notorious serial killer Nick Parrish. Until she receives some unwelcome news: Parrish, once thought permanently paralyzed by the injuries he sustained fleeing recapture, is walking again. And the rumor among the Moths, Parrish's online fan club, is that he's coming after Irene.

Suddenly Irene is on the other end of the microphone, being hounded by the media for interviews and plied with questions she'd hoped never to have to answer again. She tries to believe that she is safe from Parrish, who is imprisoned in a maximum security facility, and that the growing stream of threats from the Moths is all just talk. But an unnerving prank soon lets her know that someone , at least, wants her to be afraid. And when a young woman's body turns up in the trunk of a car near her home--naked, frozen solid, and decorated from head to toe in elaborately painted moths--it becomes clear that Irene will once again find herself pitted against a brutal murderer. She knows the twisted hunter who is stalking her all too well . . . or does she?

Nick Parrish from Bones resurfaces.....while I loved Bones, I was disappointed somewhat in this novel. Still kept me entertained, but just fell a little short.

Good plot, but will have to read previous novel to see whether I continue with this series.

Clearly a case of a good series writer going to the well once too often. This is the eleventh "Irene Kelly" book. The series probably should have been retired after the ninth or tenth title.
