The One I Left Behind by Jennifer McMahon

In a quiet Vermont community a series of severed right hands appear in milk cartons on the steps of the police department. Five days later, the body of each hand’s owner is found on public display. Alternating chapters from the past and present follow Reggie Dufrane, first as a 13 year-old living through this time of horror, with her mother the last victim, and then as an adult 25 years later, when her mother is found alive in a homeless shelter mentally and physically ill. As Reggie returns home to help care for her, the killer, known as Neptune, resumes his grisly crime spree and takes another person close to her. Can Reggie discover the identity of the killer and rescue her friend or will she become the final victim? ~Marty
