From the Publisher:
Michael Waterman is a self-made millionaire. His casinos and nightclubs ensure a constant flow of cash, and Waterman knows what he needs to do to keep it that way. So far, it seems, he has stayed on the right side of the law. Certainly, no one seriously suspects him of murdering bingo player Wilma Fenton, who was struck down while walking home with a purse crammed full of winnings. Her murder looks like an ordinary mugging except for one oddity: The killer had left Wilma's money neatly fanned out across her body.
The motive behind the bafflingly violent act dogs Lloyd and Hill--now married and the harried parents of a two-year-old daughter. The stakes are raised with a second murder, modeled on the first...and then a third. A cold-blooded killer is challenging not only the police but the one witness to the first slaying: England's premier expert on serial crime, well-known journalist and TV personality, Tony Baker. It has now become a twisted game of madness and logic--in which failure to outwit the murderer means more senseless deaths.
