about

It begins with a shocking, unsolved murder. In small town in southern Illinois, the butchered body of Linda Balfour--with a cryptic code printed in blood on the back of her head--forges a gruesome link to the brutal murder of Bishop Rushman, the beloved Chicago clergyman who had been dismembered years before by the angelic-looking altar boy, Aaron Stampler. The same Aaron Stampler whom defense attorney Martin Vail saved from the electric chair...

Now Vail is Chicago's chief prosecutor, facing the nightmare of his life. If Stampler has been locked away in a high-security institution for the past ten years, how could he have killed Linda Balfour? Then another altar boy turns up dead with a similar inscription in blood on the back of his head. If Aaron Stampler isn't committing these killings, who is? Martin Vail's career--maybe even his life--hangs on the answer...
William Diehl is the author of the bestsellers Sharky's Machine, Thai Horse, Hooligans, Chameleon, 27, and Primal Fear. He lives on St. Simons Island, Georgia, with his wife, Virginia Gunn, and his daughter, Temple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! After reading Primal Fear, I was really excited about reading this book. I read it non-stop, every day until past three in the morning(hey, with a book that good, you can't even be sleepy!) It is a thrill every person has to experience. If they don't, they don't know what they're missin'! When you read, you can't put it down. It sends shivers down your spine... I loved it because it is very reminding of Primal Fear--a novel that I absolutely loved! And the last five words of the book that I GUARANTEE will make you want to read the next one!!!

From Our Editors

Defense attorney Martin Vail has become Chicago's chief prosecutor, the man with the power to tear down enemies in high places. But he must also confront his worst legal nightmare - a nightmare that he, himself, helped to create. It begins with a shocking, unsolved murder: a young mother named Linda Balfour is butchered in a small town in southern Illinois, and no one can turn up a single lead. But then, months later, a tiny crack opens up in the case. By a stroke of pure chance, an investigator in the Chicago D.A.'s office discovers that Linda Balfour died with a coded inscription printed in blood on the back of her head. It is the exact combination of letters and numbers that was found on the head of Bishop Rushman, the beloved Chicago clergyman who had been slashed and dismembered years before by an angelic-looking altar boy named Aaron Stampler. The same Aaron Stampler whom Vail saved from the electric chair. For the past ten years, Stampler has been locked away in a high security institution for the criminally insane, with no access to the outside world. So h
