It came in a plain brown wrapper, no return address an audiocassette recording of a horrifying, soul-lacerating scream, followed by the sound of a childlike voice chanting: Bad love. Bad love. Don t give me the bad love. For Alex Delaware the tape is the first intimation that he is about to enter a living nightmare. Others soon follow: disquieting laughter echoing over a phone line that suddenly goes dead, and a chilling act of trespass and vandalism. He has become the target of a carefully orchestrated campaign of vague threats and intimidation rapidly building to a crescendo as harassment turns to terror, mischief to madness.
A wonderful, roller-coaster ride . . . a guaranteed page-turner. "USA Today"
With the help of his friend, LAPD detective Milo Sturgis, Alex uncovers a series of violent deaths that may follow a diabolical pattern. And if he fails to decipher the twisted logic of the stalker's mind games, Alex will be the next to die.
