Description

A killer dubbed 'The Night Prowler" has turned the city that doesn't sleep into a town kept awake by terror. Unseen, he enters couples' homes. Unsuspected, he lingers until the perfect moment arrives. He leaves "gifts" for his victims--before taking their lives. Enter ex-homicide cop Frank Quinn, still reeling in the wake of an elaborate setup that ended his career. For Quinn, this isn't just any job--it's a last chance to salvage his reputation. As the investigation proceeds, the murderer loses no time stalking new prey: a loan officer and her high-earning husband; a couple who made a killing in the stock market; a pretty actress and her prosperous lover. With the body count rising. it's up to Quinn to unlock the mystery of a madman's past and end his bloody reign. Quinn's got his work cut out--because in a city the size of New York, any one of eight million faces could be that of a killer--or his next target. A multiple Edgar and Shamus Award winner--including the Shamus Lifetime Achievement Award--John Lutz is the author of over forty books. His novel SWF Seeks Same was made into the hit move, Single White Female, and The Ex was a critically acclaimed HBO feature. He lives in St. Louis, Missouri.show more
