No place is safe: from a cheap New York City walk-up to a secluded Colorado cabin. The Shadow Man is out to kill...and Senator Jerry Andrews is out to find him.
Andrews' friend, psychiatrist Dana Larsen, comes tohim for advice. He's been having trouble with his investigation of convicted political assassin Martin Karpp - a very special case, known to have six separate personalities.
Twenty-four hours after his visit with Andrews, Larsen is found floating in the Hudson River. All the evidence points to Karpp, who has written threatening notes to Larsen and has been spotted in retaurants, subways and crowded streets all over Manhattan. There's only one catch: Martin Karpp is behind bars in a maximum security hospital for hte criminally insane, far from the city.
Senator Andrews feels compelled to pick up the trail of Larsen's investigation and to find his friend's murderer. He becomes enmeshed in a chilling web of brutality and bizarre coincidence; his pursuit becomes an obsession, as he delves into the sordid world of New York's topless bars, back alleys and dingy hotels. The true terror begins when Andrews finds out that the man he is stalking is just one step ahead - and stalking him.
