Dr. Henry Lee and Jerry Labriola, M.D.
On a dark fall night at the Brooklyn Marine Terminal in New York City, police uncover a truly grisly scene: The naked corpses of three murdered young women lying on the pier. Weirdly, their bodies are neatly arranged to form a perfect triangle, each face up with one eye glued open and the other shut. A gunshot wound to the side of each woman’s head confirms the initial impression that this was an execution-style killing.
Dr. Henry Lie – a brilliant forensic scientist - calls together the Global Interactive Forensic Team (GIFT) to investigate these brutal murders. Composed of the very best in the profession, this eclectic group of four men and one woman works together as a forensics
SWAT team to solve bizarre and insidious rimes around the globe.
So begins the intricate, suspense-filled plot of this exciting murder mystery, written by world-renowned forensic scientist Dr. Henry Lee and critically acclaimed mystery writer Jerry Labriola MD.
Dr. Liu and his group boldly pursue leads that are fraught with danger and bloodshed at every turn. They encounter an assortment of strange and suspicious characters – including a descendent of the real-life Dracula (who proudly displays his chain collection). Despite receiving a barrage of threats warning him to drop the case – as well as overtures from the frankly seductive Dr. Gail Merriday, a detective in his own group – Dr. Liu remains focused on the aim of his quest: to discover the identity of Mr. or Ms. Big – a top international criminal.
