From the Publisher:

*"Cormier is in top form in this cilling portrait...a sense of 'tenderness' pervades this gripping tale."
-- School Library Journal, starred review

"Cormier's latest is a mesmerizing plunge into the mind of a psychopathic teen killer that is both deeply disturbing and utterly compelling."
--Booklist

"A serial killer; an aging cop with a hunch; an impulsive 15-year-old runaway: Three familiar characters are spun by a master of suspense into another disturbing study in emotional dysfunction."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Rarely has Cormier's irony been darker...readers will stay on the edge of their seats."
-- Publishers Weekly

From the Inside Flap:

Eighteen-year-old Eric has just been released from juvenile detention for murdering his mother and stepfather.  Now he's looking for
tenderness--tenderness he finds in caressing and killing beautiful girls.

Fifteen-year-old Lori has run away from home again.  Emotionally naive but sexually precocious, she is also looking for tenderness--tenderness she finds in Eric.  Will Lori and Eric be each other's salvation or destruction?  Told from their alternating points of view, this harrowing thriller speeds to its fateful conclusion with an irresistible force, and a final twist that will not be easily forgotten.
