Baker & Taylor
When Terry Naughton, a cop with a mysterious past, confronts Horridus, a psychopath who kidnaps children and returns them in period clothing accompanied by a piece of snakeskin, he is desperate to apprehend the mad man to atone for past mistakes

Blackwell North Amer
Terry Naughton, head of Orange County's Crimes Against Youth unit, is the champion of children.
He's come up against his share of heinous criminals in his years on the force - but nothing has prepared him for the Horridus. Abducting children from their beds, dressing them like little angels, and releasing them the next day, the only clue he leaves is a piece of snakeskin tucked into the folds of their gowns. So far he hasn't physically harmed any of them, but as Naughton well knows, it's only a matter of time.
As he races to find the madman before his crimes escalate, Naughton learns that the Horridus may not be the only enemy. When shocking (and seemingly irrefutable) accusations put his career on the line, he is forced to confront his dark and violent past in his search for the truth.
