The Silk Stocking Rapist made flashy fodder for the press, targeting New York's wealthier women. And then he just disappeared, leaving the police with only a composite sketch of his appearance. Now, four years later, he's back in Assistant DA Alexandra Cooper's territory. Yet she and Detective Mike Chapman have only science, in the form of DNA, to help them.

But suddenly science is sidelined by history, with the macabre discovery of a woman's body walled up in a historic house. It's the house when Edgar Allan Poe penned an exquisite meditation on passion and revenge - a tale of being buried alive... But this corpse, now a skeleton, was nothing to do with Poe. It dates from the late 1970s.

And then the Silk Stocking Rapist strikes again. Or does he? This time the victim is murdered. Her death at least means that her greatest fear will never be realised - her terror of being buried alive. A terror, as Alex discovers, that dates back to about 1978.
