Abstract:

"Detective Sergeant Lloyd Hopkins loves his work, his family, women, and innocence. Preternaturally brilliant and with an extraordinary instinct for police work, Hopkins moves through the Los Angeles night world saving souls, while faced with the constant threat of losing his own. Someone else is stalking the city now--someone who can match Hopkins point for point in brilliance. But Teddy Verplanck has turned his mind to evil: he protects the innocent by murdering them. So successful has he been that in twenty years not one of his victims has been connected to another. Most are deemed suicides. Drawn inexorably together, Hopkins and Verplanck challenge each other in a confrontation which pits icy intelligence against white-heated madness and lays bare the souls of two men driven in opposite directions by the same need"--From publisher description.
