Publisher's Summary

They were known as the Killing Times, when serial murder reached epidemic proportions. Victims of hard-edged crime demanded hard-wired punishment, and the new prisons were born.
Now one determined woman, a survivor of that dark age, tries to rehabilitate killers by tapping into the source of their obsessions: their worst fears. Her name is Dr. Jaguar Addams, and on a satellite prison called Planetoid Three she is about to face the most challenging subject of her career: the ultimate assassin, a dangerously disturbed woman who will teach Jaguar the true meaning of fear.

Great ride, great read

Not much more to say. The book grabs you right away and powers you along in a strange world that is both compelling and frightening. The narration elevates the book. It sweeps you along and adds to the intrigue and drama. A great combination.
