CATCH-AS-CATCH-CAN There is a capacity in some people for evil, a dark facet of their personality which ordinary, everyday life may never reveal. But place one of them in circumstances where the possibility of evil exists, and it will rise to the surface transforming him into a monster as deadly and destructive as a professional killer. Such a man was Clive Breen, and such an opportunity for evil arose when his cousin Laila, young, lonely, and bewildered, turned to him for comfort and advice. Laila had been unknowingly poisoned, but she could be saved if treatment was administered in time. But Laila had disappeared before she could be warned of her danger. There were people who knew of Laila's whereabouts, and there were people who knew of the vital necessity of her reaching a hospital in time, but only Clive knew both, and he wanted Laila to die. This is the story of a race literally against time, a race in which the prize is the life of an innocent girl. With all the mastery of suspense and heart-stopping tension that her readers have come to expect, CHARLOTTE ARMSTRONG tells this story of a nerve-racking search and the people involved in it; good, everyday people contending with the unsuspected evil in one man.
