Publisher's Summary

The "maddog" murderer who is terrorizing the Twin Cities is two things: insane and extremely intelligent. He kills for the pleasure of it and thoroughly enjoys placing elaborate obstacles to keep police befuddled. Each clever move he makes is another point of pride. But when the brilliant Lieutenant Lucas Davenport, a dedicated cop and a serial killer's worst nightmare, is brought in to take up the investigation, the maddog suddenly has an adversary worthy of his genius.


What the Critics Say

"A police procedural as effective as it is brutal." (Publishers Weekly)
"Sleek and nasty...a big, scary suspenseful read." (Stephen King)

Smart Start to a Series

I'm always looking for a new author of thrillers that I like, and I'm super picky. I need it to be psychologically gripping and this book had me. I liked it that we got in the mind of the killer, and it was a good police procedural. The womanizing was slightly annoying, and I hated the pregnant girlfriend, but I'm hoping she doesn't last through the whole series. But those were such a small part of the book they didn't really make me like the book less, and hey, he offset that with a nun for a friend. Overall very interesting and I'll keep reading this series.
