He’s the perfect man: tall, dark, movie-star handsome, and brilliant — just what the doctor ordered. At least that’s what the fertility patients who have carried his children believe. On paper, Dr. Harmon Gettys is the ideal sperm donor, but after his capture, his record reveals a more disturbing truth: he’s a serial killer. A new generation is born Gruesome fire-related murders are nothing new to Fire Marshal Greymon Gift, but an increasing number of arson murders has him on sudden, high alert. When he begins work with FBI Special Agent Rose Cleary, Gift learns of an investigation linking convicted killer Harmon Gettys’s DNA to several murders. Gift and Cleary plunge into a horror they can barely comprehend. Gettys was believed dead for years, but even if he were alive, the crimes spreading from coast to coast could never be committed by just one man — unless the evil seeds planted a generation ago were coming into their own.
