FBI agent Brad Raines is hunting for a serial killer who kidnaps beautiful women, drills holes in their heels and then hangs them in a pose reminiscent of the crucifiction, draining their blood. The killer, who uses makeup to cover any blemishes and dresses his victims in a bridal veil, is dubbed "The Bride Collector" by the FBI. Brad employs four patients at a mental health clinic to help in his search; all four have crippling forms of mental illness ranging from manic/depressive disorder to full-blown schizophrenia, and all four have amazing mental gifts far outstripping the mental capabilities of agent Raines. As agent Raines and the psychiatric patients draw closer to the Bride Collector, the serial killer begins striking at them, letting them know that he is in turn hunting them.

This is a well written book, for those that enjoy this type of serial killer procedural it would probably be considered an excellent book. Not being my cup of tea, I enjoyed the book but found nothing that remarkable about it. Recommended for fans of this genre or author.
