Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When the mass murder of thirteen patrons in a Louisville restaurant is discovered just after closing, the police call in criminology professor Daniel Millikan to profile the murderer. Their investigation soon comes to a standstill, however, prompting the frustrated father of one of the victims to seek out Millikan's help in finding the assassin. Millikan knows of only one man capable of tracking down the elusive killer and ending the bloodshed: Roy Prescott, a professional manhunter who uses methods beyond the scope of the law. Prescott's subsequent hunt takes him all across the country, pitting him time and again against a killer without a conscience in a pursuit that both men know can only end in death. But with these evenly matched professionals, the one who will emerge as victor is not at all clear.
