Paul and Annie Milton bought the dilapidated mansion known as Cul-De-Sac to restore it. But strange things are happening at the old house. They are being stalked. Paul is losing his mind, yet he refuses to leave. Ex-cop Teddy Camel begins to investigate the mystery surrounding Cul-De-Sac, starting with the violent killing that took place there seven years before. And what he and Annie uncover--about a high-level cover-up, a family with dark and expensive secrets, and an ex-convict bent on exacting his own brand of horrific justice--could very well kill them all.

Great villains can make a mystery, and David Martin's latest has not one but two wonderful heavies--a grinning lunatic named Donald Growler, guilty of everything but the murder that got him sent to prison, and McCleany, the cold-blooded cop who framed him. Squeezed between these two evils are Paul, the gentle, religious young man who helped Growler get paroled, Paul's wife, and her former lover--a tough ex-cop named Teddy Camel who can look at bad guys and make them confess. Camel will need all his smarts to get over the hump of a vengeful Growler and an even more vicious McCleany. Martin's previous Camel caravan, Lie to Me, is available in paperback.From the Publisher:
