Description:
Dr Caleb Maddox is a crack San Francisco toxicologist leading a ground-breaking study of the human pain threshhold based on the minute analysis of chemical markers. He has also just broken up with his girlfriend after she discovered a family secret in his past. Seeking solace, Caleb finds a dark, old-fashioned saloon called House of Shields, and is mesmerised when a beautiful woman materialises out of the shadows, dressed like a 1940s movie star. The enigmatic Emmeline shares an absinthe with him, brushes his arm and vanishes. As he pursues her through the brooding, night-time city, desperate to see her again, he simultaneously becomes entangled in a serial murder investigation that has the police stymied - men gone missing, fished out of the bay, with no clue as to how they met their end - until Caleb's analysis of the chemical markers in their bodies reveals that each one was tortured to death.

Wow! One of the best books I've ever read. I couldn't put it down. A terrific thriller with a touch of Stephen King.
