Publication: Morrow, 1996, New York
First edition. Signed. Fine in dust jacket. A second case for the private detective team of Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro. When the two agree to protect the son of a prominent psychiatrist, they soon find bodies are piling up around them. All clues to the killer point to an unlikely suspect ... a serial killer who has been in prison for the past twenty years, so he can't be killing again ..... or can he? The sleepy town of Dorchester is tarnished by a 20-year string of strangely similar killings. As Angie and Patrick try to find out what kind of human being could perform such horrifying acts of rape, mutilation, torture, and dismemberment, they soon find that the killer's motive is disturbingly rooted in their own distant past.
