After losing his fiancee in the GENERAL SLOCUM ferry disaster, Detective Simon Ziele transferred to a country town north of Manhattan in the hope of escaping his grief. But only months later he's faced with the shocking murder of a young girl - battered to death in her bedroom on an otherwise calm winter's afternoon. And when Alistair Sinclair, one of Columbia University's most noted criminologists, learns about the case, he realizes it bears an uncanny resemblance to the deranged mutterings of one of his research subjects. Ziele must work with Sinclair to determine whether his patient - with a terrifying history of violent behaviour and brutal fantasies - did indeed seek out this innocent young victim, before the vicious murderer strikes again.
