Ablow, Keith R.|
Forensic psychiatrist Frank Clevenger confronts the ultimate opponent: a serial killer who is also a brilliant psychiatrist, with an uncanny ability to burrow into the deepest recesses of the human mind. With victims strewn across twelve states, there seems to be no end to the terror of the serial killer known only as the `Highway Killer.' Chosen seemingly at random, his victims are young and old, male and female, from all walks of life. The FBI has no leads. And bodies keep turning up coast to coast. What the authorities can't know is that the killer is also a gifted healer, a psychiatrist who lures his victims into a false sense of security with his miraculous ability to spark instant intimacy and to understand their darkest emotional secrets. He is their confessor, but he is also their executioner.
