Signed by The Author. 0892960698. keywords: March 4. inventory # 24367. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Detective Sergeant Lloyd Hopkins loves his work, his family, women, and innocence. Preternaturally brilliant and with an extraordinary instinct for police work, Hopkins moves through the Los Angeles night world saving souls, while faced with the constant threat of losing his own. Someone else is stalking the city now - someone who can match Hopkins point for point in brilliance. But Teddy Verplanck has turned his mind to evil: he protects the innocent by murdering them. So successful has he been that in twenty years not one of his victims has been connected to another. Most are deemed suicides. Drawn inexorably together, Hopkins and Verplanck challenge each other in a confrontation which pits icy intelligence against white-heated madness and lays bare the souls of two men driven in opposite directions by the same need. Searing and shocking, as evocative of Los Angeles police work as the stories of Joseph Wambaugh and as compelling as the novels of Lawrence Sanders, Blood on the Moon is a frightening and exciting foray into the world of men driven by forces so strong they take over every life they touch. .

Synopsis: Detective Sergeant Lloyd Hopkins can't stand music, or any loud sounds. He's got a beautiful wife, but he can't get enough of other women. And instead of bedtime stories, he regales his daughters with bloody crime stories. He's a thinking man's cop with a dark past and an obsessive drive to hunt down monsters who prey on the innocent. Now, there's something haunting him. He sees a connection in a series of increasingly gruesome murders of women committed over a period of twenty years. To solve the case, Hopkins will dump all the rules and risk his career to make the final link and get the killer.
