The power to heal or to destroy. To grant life or to cause death. I revere this gift, have honed it over time to an art as magnificent and awesome as any painting in the Louvre.I am art, I am science. In all the ways that matter, I am God.God must be ruthless and far-sighted. God studies his creations and selects. The best of these creations must be cherished, protected, sustained. Greatness rewards perfection.Yet even the flawed have purpose.A wise God experiments, considers, uses what comes into His hands and forges wonders. Yes, often without mercy, often with a violence the ordinary condemn.We who hold power cannot be distracted by the condemnations of the ordinary, by the petty and pitiful laws of simple men. They are blind, their minds are closed with fear—fear of pain, fear of death. They are too limited to comprehend that death can be conquered.I have nearly done so.If my work was discovered, they, with their foolish laws and attitudes, would damn me.When my work is complete, they will worship me.chapter oneFor some,

From Our Editors
serial killer uses the precision of a plastic surgeon as he carefully plucks
innocent victims from the streets of New York City. His first victim is a
homeless person who was found without bruises or signs of trauma other than a
fist-sized hole where his heart was. Lieutenant Eve Dallas investigates and
suddenly finds her job on the line as she plays a careful game with a killer
who thinks he’s God in J.D. Robb’s romantic
thriller Conspiracy in Death.
