Richard Glash--brilliant and sociopathic--lives to kill. When he escapes from a high-security hospital for the criminally insane he leaves a trail of bodies, that gives little clue as to the nightmare yet to come. Glash, along with a paranoid biochemist, has hatched a plot so deadly that if he succeeds it will bring agonizing death to millions.
With time ticking fast, Forensic psychiatrist Dr. Barrett Conyors returns for a second heart-pounding high-stakes thriller. To stop Glash she must risk all, as the lives of everyone she loves—including her unborn child—hang by the thinnest of threads.
