AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Tall, blonde and beautiful - It's no surprise that Canadian Makedde Vanderwall is a model. What is surprising is her street-smart ways and her own recognition that modeling is only a stopgap career, a lucrative means to fund her tuition for a degree in forensic psychology. But more surprising - and disturbing - is that while on assignment in Sydney, Australia, Makedde finds herself in the middle of a grisly, sensational hunt for the "Stiletto Murderer" - a serial killer who brutally murdered Makedde's best friend - and may see Makedde as his next fashion victim.
Who is this murderous monster with the penchant for sexy shoes? The world of fashion takes on sinister tones - a photographer who get off on snapping photos of dead bodies; beautiful women with rich but mysterious sugar daddies; and bottom feeders who cruise the murky ocean of high fashion and low morals. And now, seemingly deserted by the one cop who can save her, Makedde is a girl on the edge of unimaginable terror, in a place where perfect beauty is transformed into darkest death...'
