Synopsis: 'One of the creepiest killers since Hannibal Lecter meets a plot and heroine worthy of Patricia Cornwell. Welcome to the big time...' - KIRKUS REVIEWS Winner of a 1995 Edgar & nominated for the Best Mystery Macavity. 'A wonderfully appealing heroine with a lot of guts, a fine sense of humour, a more than passing acquaintance with life's ironies, and enough of her own dark secrets to make her both vulnerable and humane. Two thumbs up - way up! - for this outstanding book.' - BOOKLIST Molly Cates is a good ol' Texas gal who's spent the last decade of her career writing a biography of down-and-out serial killer Louie Bronk. Her book has just been published, and Louie, after eleven years on Death Row, is about to be executed. At the last moment, though, he recants. Hooked yet again, Molly reinvestigates and gets caught up in a series of bizarre events that end in a stunningly unexpected climax.
Review: In this 1995 winner of the Edgar Award for best mystery novel, crime reporter Molly Cates has chronicled the exploits of Louie Bronk, a brutal serial killer scheduled for execution, for her first book. With his execution just a few days away, Molly decides to write the closing chapter on her disturbing relationship with the man known as the Texas Scalper. Strangely, both her boss and the husband of the woman whose murder got Bronk the death penalty pressure her to back off the story. When she receives a chilling anonymous letter and another body is found, she begins to suspect that Bronk is not the killer at all. Her quest for the truth, she discovers, not only discredits her work, but places her own life on the line.
