Taylor Robinson is a very successful agent, especially since she took a chance on a talented but unknown author. Now he is her fiancé and number one on the New York Times bestseller list.

Michael Schiftmann has made a fortune writing about a gruesome serial killer whose signature is the bloody letter he leaves on the wall of the murder scene. Could he be even more familiar with the murderer called the Alphabet Man than even his books would indicate?

Hank Powell is a burnt out FBI agent faced with the most notorious serial killer in his career. Could the murderer be a best selling author? Does his fiancée know?

A serial killer’s crimes and an author’s works closely parallel each other, too closely for it to be a coincidence. Does he know the killer or is he the killer?

This story grabbed my attention from the very beginning and kept it to the exciting conclusion. The author captured the sociopathic serial killer’s personality and methods very well without delving into too technical information that some authors feel they must include. Mr. Womack sticks to his storyline which makes the tale all the better. He gives us a clear picture of all aspects of Michael and his motivations. I love how the case is finally broken by a little old lady who likes to read mystery novels. The author does a great job of describing Schiftmann’s life and describes the crime scenes in gruesome detail. He uses the same attention to detail to describe the investigation of the crime. The subplot of the developing friendship between Agent Powell and Taylor adds depth to a truly suspenseful read.
