Summary (From the publisher):

The bear is on the prowl in many different guises. He may be the master thief stealing into Graceland, an intense young passenger experimenting in terror, or a psychiatrist haunted by his patient's nightmare. Or maybe he's beautiful, lethal woman in a blood-red scarf. So beware of the this huge, dangerous beast. Because first he will enthrall you...and then he will strike.
