‘Say Goodbye’ – Come into my parlor… For Kimberly Quincy, FBI Special Agent, it all starts with a pregnant hooker.  The story Delilah Rose tells Kimberly about her johns is too horrifying to be true – but prostitutes are disappearing, one by one, with no explanation, and no one but Kimberly seems to care.

Said the spider to the fly…

As a member of the Evidence Response Team, dead hookers aren’t exactly Kimberly’s specialty.  The young agent is five months pregnant – she has other things to worry about than an alleged lunatic who uses spiders to do his dirty work.  But Kimberly’s own mother and sister were victims of a serial killer.  And now, without any bodies and with precious few clues, it’s all too clear that a serial killer has found the key to the perfect murder . . . or Kimberly is chasing a crime that never happened.

Kimberly’s caught in a web more lethal than any spider’s, and the more she fights for answers, the more tightly she’s trapped.  What she doesn’t know is that she’s close – too close – to a psychopath who makes women’s nightmares come alive, and if he has his twisted way, it won’t be long before it’s time for Kimberly to…SAY GOODBYE!
