(From the publisher):
He was so careful and clever that at first the cops had bodies but no reason to link the murders, nothing to indicate that they were the gruesome handiwork of one man. But a combination of instinct, police work and luck led one detective to suspect the truth - a truth so horrible that no one wanted to believe it.
But even as the terrifying reality became all too clear, there was still one question that no one could answer - why? What could possibly drive someone to commit acts so evil they sickened even seasoned police officers? As the police began to understand the madman's twisted motives, they also began to grasp the true horror of what had started the killing spree... and what they had to do to stop it.
