Murder, in hot blood and cold . . . madness, deep into the bone . . . John  Sandford's newest thriller is his most chilling novel yet.

For three books, critics and readers have hailed John Sandford as "a born storyteller" (The San Diego Union), his hero as "one of the most engaging (and iconoclastic) characters in contemporary fiction" (The Detroit News), his work as "the kind of trimmed-to-the-bone thriller that is hard to put down" (Chicago THbune). And now, in his fourth Lucas Davenport novel, he has created his most spellbinding story of all.

Bekker's ruined face twisted. "You should have..."

"What?" Lucas demanded.

* . . killed me," Bekker said. "Fool."

He was right. His guards slain, the brilliant, insane pathologist of Eyes of Prey flees to New York, there to continue his research into aspects of death. Carefully, he conducts his experiments, searching the eyes of his dying victims for what they can reveal, the mounting body count causing an uproar in the city.

In desperation, the police reach out for the man who knew Bekker best, but when Lucas arrives, he finds unexpected danger as well. For Lily Rothenburg, the policewoman whose intense affair with Lucas has never completely faded, is there too. Now, consumed with her own investigation of a group of rogue killers within the police department, she draws Lucas into her orbit again, until their hunts merge, their twin obsessions driving them ever closer to the edge . . . and then over.

Never has Sandford's insight into the human dark side been more penetrating, more terrifyingly real. Rich, complex and full of extraordinary characters, his new book is a masterpiece of suspense.
