Charlotte, North Carolina. One of the town's oldest neighbourhoods. An underground chamber is exposed in a seedy, dilapidated house with sagging trim and peeling paint...

Called to the scene is forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance Brennan. fighting her claustrophobia, and the unmistakable sweet, fetid odour of rotting flesh, Tempe descends the precariously steep, makeshift wooden steps.

Age, race and sex indicators confirm the skull as that of a young, black female - but how did she die, and when? Then, just as Tempe is working to determine the post-mortem interval, another body is discovered. The corpse is headless, the torso carved with satanic symbols. Led by a preacher-turned-politician, citizen vigilantes blame Devil-worshipprs and begin a witch-hunt, intent on revenge.

As Tempe struggles to keep her emotions and imagination from running away with her, she makes another chilling discovery.
