Synopsis: Forensic psychiatrist Frank Clevenger returns in this arresting new thriller from bestselling author Keith Ablow. Having achieved celebrity status with his last case, Clevenger is tapped by the FBI to catch an elusive murderer known as the Highway Killer, who has left twelve bodies strewn across twelve states. But the Highway Killer isn?t just a serial killer--he?s a psychiatrist whose brilliance as a doctor is matched only by his precision as a murderer.
When he writes to a national newspaper challenging Clevenger to cure him through an exchange of open letters, a gripping public therapy unfolds. With the Highway Killer?s brutality reaching new heights as he confronts his mind?s darkest demons, will Clevenger exorcise those demons before they spin completely out of control?
From the Back Cover:
"A superior read."
12 bodies, 12 states. What no one knows is that the "Highway Killer" is also a gifted psychiatrist who lures his victims into a false sense of security with his miraculous ability to understand their darkest emotional secrets. He is their confessor, but he is also their executioner. When the killer writes to The New York Times, challenging famed forensic psychiatrist Frank Clevenger to heal him through an exchange of open letters on the front page, he opens his diabolical mind to the one man with the courage to cure him-or die trying...
"Dr. Frank Clevenger, forensic psychiatrist and (somewhat reluctant) crime-solver, is quickly becoming one of the genre's most intriguing protagonists...a strange and hypnotic thriller...fascinating."
"A tour de force. Ablow is not satisfied with the superficial. He digs deep to create complex characters"
