New York City is caught in the cold grip of a brutal serial killer who savagely rapes and murders his young, blonde victims. While ravaging them, his mind whirls with symphonic images and raging desires--rarely giving thought to his loving wife and child.

She is beginning to wonder if the killer could be closer than she thinks. But no. Impossible. She has to be dead wrong....
