LAPD Lieutenant Milo Sturgis is a fine homicide detective, but when he needs to get into the mind of a killer, he leans on the expertise of his best friend, the brilliant psychologist Dr. Alex Delaware. While Sturgis has a knack for piecing together the details of a crime, Delaware can decipher the darkest intents driving the most vicious of perpetrators. And there’s no better place for the doctor’s analytical skills to shine than a rowdy hall full of young men and women intoxicated on life and lust . . . and suddenly faced with the specter of death.

Summoned to a run-down former strip joint, Delaware and Sturgis find themselves crashing a wild Saints and Sinners–themed wedding reception. But they’re not the only uninvited guests. A horrified bridesmaid has discovered the body of a young woman, dressed to impress in pricey haute couture and accessorized with a grisly red slash around her neck. What’s missing is any means of identification, or a single partygoer who recognizes the victim. The baffled bride is convinced the stranger snuck in to sabotage her big day—and the groom is sure it’s all a dreadful mistake. But Delaware and Sturgis have a hundred guests to question, and a sneaking suspicion that the motive for murder is personal. Now they must separate the sinners from the saints, the true from the false, and the secrets from those keeping them. The party’s over—and the hunt for whoever killed it is on.

 

洛杉磯警局中尉米洛·史特吉斯是一名出色的兇殺案偵探,但當他需要探索殺人魔的心路歷程時,他依靠他最好的朋友--才華橫溢的心理學家亞歷克斯·德拉華博士的專業知識。史特吉斯有訣竅將罪行的細節拼湊起來,而德拉華可以破解兇惡的犯罪者最黑暗的意圖。而且,沒有一個地方比得上這喧鬧大廳中充滿年輕男女流動情慾卻突然間要面對死亡焦慮更能激發博士的分析能力…
 
被召喚到以前是脫衣舞場的破舊建築物內,德拉華和史特吉斯發現自己闖入以聖徒和罪人為主題的狂野婚禮。但是,他們並不是唯一不受歡迎的客人。驚駭的伴娘發現了一個年輕女子的屍體,穿著昂貴的高級訂製服給人留下深刻印象,脖子上有一道令人作嘔的紅色砍痕。所缺少的是任何身份識別證明,或任何一位認識受害者的聚會參與者。困惑的新娘認為是陌生人蓄意破壞她的大日子,而新郎則肯定這是一個可怕的錯誤。但是德拉華和史特吉斯有一百個客人要質問,也暗中懷疑謀殺動機是純屬個人因素。現在,他們必須將罪人與聖徒分開,分辨真與假,及刻意保留秘密的人。派對結束了,尋找殺人魔仍未終止。
