Sherice Solomon, the serial killer known as Ice, is moving west. Santa Maria, California police Detective Darcie Devonshire is sure Ice has made it to the central coast when a body turns up in a dumpster with the killer’s distinctive kill-slice across his throat. With the discovery of the body, also comes the shock of discovering, Morgan Garret, Darcie’s ex CIA partner and lover, was found with the dead man. Morgan stumbles upon the body while in a drunken stupor and has no memory of how he ended up in the alley. He is held briefly by the Santa Maria and released. A decision to sober up takes him to Pacific Winds, a clinic for substance abusers. At Pacific Winds, Sherice Solomon, has taken a position as a clinical psychologist. With her first encounter with Morgan, she decides he will join her on her hunts. A decision, Arahni, the soul in the shafra that speaks and guides Sherice, refuses to accept. When Darcie and Morgan discover each other again old feelings ignite. This Sherice will not tolerate, there can be only one answer. Darcie must die.
