Twice Dyingby Neil McMahon
Synopses & Reviews
Outside San Francisco, a sting of NGI's — violent sociopaths found not guilty by reason of insanity — have been sent back into society, and, one by one, mysteriously disappeared....
Beautiful psychologist Alison Chapley wants to know why and sets off on a search for answers that lures her and her former lover, medical examiner Carroll Monks, into a menacing and increasingly macabre dance with a brilliant psychopath known only as Naia....
Naia's perverse and carefully chosen clues — plaster masks, a snuff videotape, a deadly cobra — draw Alison into a psychological seduction she's powerless to resist. Running out of time, Monks's only chance to save Alison is to outwit this twisted mastermind in a deranged and deadly game of cat-and-mouse.
"A chilling and fast-moving thriller." Phillip Margolin
