Archie Sheridan, the Portland, Oregon, police detective that has been obsessed with serial killer Gretchen Lowell is back.

The Willamette River is overflowing it's banks due to heavy rains and melting snow. There have already been several drowning's.

Archie becomes involved with a bizarre situation when a young girl is found on a merry-go-round and the cause of death looks like a drowning. If this is the case, how did she get on the merry-go-round?

The medical examiner finds that she may well have been dead before she went into the water. In fact, it looks as if she has been poisoned, not only poisoned but poisoned in a very unusual way.

This leads to the reexamination of the other drowning victims, and it is found that they too seem to have been poisoned in the same way.

Archie is also being shadowed by reporter Susan Ward who becomes very instrumental in solving the case, although she may very well be the next victim.

The murders are definately the work of a serial killer, but Gretchen Lowell is still incarcerated and cannot be the murderer. However, the ending of the book will leave the reader believing that Gretchen will be back.

An exciting mystery that please Archie Sheridan fans, and continues the suspense and horror that have become a trade make of Chelsea Cain.
