(From the publisher):
Against the sinister backdrop of New York's fringe world - its dank alleys, creepy bars and grime laden cold flats, this fiercely exciting drama of mauled and twisted lives moves to its terror-packed climax!
Wallie Kroll, a quack doctor, lived a cringing, drink-cadging existence, until he discovered there was money in dope. But every knock on his door was terrorizing - was it just another agonized soul willing to pay high for the deadly pain killer Wallie called a "prescription" - or was it the police...or worse...
Carla was one of the victims whose screaming nerves had driven her to Wallie's door. Her wealthy husband abandoned, her pride and beauty shattered, she flung her tormented body through the menacing streets to the final blinding moment of engulfing horror.
This is a spellbinding novel of five people linked to the city's strange ties, forced by macabre twists of fate into a nightmare world from which the only escape was death.
