Abstract:

When body of a washed-up rocker is found riddled with puncture wounds, his arms tied to his bed, suspicion immediately falls on his frequent sexual partner Catherine Tramell. In the wealthy, sexually aggressive mystery writer's most recent novel, a rock star is murdered in precisely the same way. Is the book a perfect alibi, or is she pulling a double-reverse bluff? San Francisco homicide detective Nick Curran has a violent past, an addictive nature, and a belief he can handle anyone's darkness. His on-again/off-again girlfriend, police psychologist Dr. Beth Garner, disagrees. Upon meeting Catherine, he's mesmerized--despite recognizing that she's a sinister manipulator and possibly a brutal killer--finding her irresistible. Is she guilty? Does he care?
