Abstract:

You always remember the first time. Isn't that what they say about sex? How much more true it is of murder.... Up till now, the only serial killers Tony Hill had encountered were safely behind bars. This one's different--this one's on the loose. In the northern town of Bradfield four men have been found mutilated and tortured. Fear grips the city; no man feels safe. Clinical psychologist Tony Hill is brought in to profile the killer. A man with more than enough sexual problems of his own, Tony himself becomes the unsuspecting target in a battle of wits and wills where he has to use every ounce of his professional nerve to survive.
