The Echo ManBook - 2011
It is fall in Philadelphia and the mutilated body of a man has been found in one of the poorest neighborhoods of the city. The victim's forehead and eyes are wrapped in a band of white paper, sealed on one side with red sealing wax. On the other side is a smear of blood in the shape of a figure eight. The victim has been roughly and violently shaved clean - head to toe - a temporary tattoo on his finger. When homicide detectives Kevin Byrne and Jessica Balzano investigate, they soon realize that their crime scene is linked to the past. Eight years ago, another body was found in the same place, in the same position, killed in the same manner. That case was never closed. Apart from this killer's grotesque calling cards, the crime scene photos - past and present - are identical. As another brutalized body appears, then another, it becomes horrifyingly clear that someone is re-creating unsolved murders from Philadelphia's past in the most sinister of ways. And the killer is closer than they think . . .
