Detective Gunther Quinn believes heâ€™s just your average criminal investigator, yet he possesses certain qualities that are unique and unusual. He survives the mental stress of his work because heâ€™s able to escape from that â€˜real lifeâ€™, a phrase he uses to describe his job and those who make his job necessary. And what is this escape, his refuge? Oddly enough, itâ€™s spending time with nature, in a small forest Glen in the city park. Youâ€™ll find out why thatâ€™s important later in the story. And one perfectly ordinary day, heâ€™s assigned a case, a case involving a particularly brutal murder of a young woman. But this young woman comes from a family whose history is integral to his cityâ€™s history; and that will prove critical in their search for her killer. But the case, and his personal life for that matter, quickly get complicated. Does that include love, maybe? A connection to previous murders is soon discovered. The only possible conclusion is not a welcomed one; their city is dealing with a serial killer. Slowly, riddles and clues are discovered at the crime scenes, leading them on, taunting them. They devise a trap for the killer, but who will really get caught in the end? Anybody? Or is the killer just toying with them? Oh, yeah, that nature thing. Detective Quinnâ€™s place of escape, this forest Glen, suddenly turns from a refuge intoâ€”well, something unreal. Itâ€™s impossible to explain in just a few words; itâ€™s one of those paradox things. Youâ€™ll just have to read his story, a different kind of crime story, to find outâ€”the whole truth.
