Lisa Jackson’s new book is “Never Die Alone.” It was one of the most brutal cases of Rick Bentz’s career – the 21 victims were always twins, abducted just before their 21st birthday, their savage, ritualistic murders planned in exquisite detail. Now the killer is behind bars . . . or is he? Twin sisters have vanished without a trace just days before their birthday. As Bentz and his partner, Reuben Montoya, follow the trail through bayous and back streets, a killer prepares to unite his next victims in death forever.
