Detectives Kling, Carella and Meyer knew the messages were clues to where the Deaf Man would strike next. But they didn'tknow the Deaf Man had a special surprise in store for one of them. .. a grisly present for another... and a horrifying act of revenge for all the cops determined to catch a psychopathic killer.

it all got terribly confusing when the deaf man put in an appearance and the criminal mastermind is making his presence known by the dead bodies that are turing up around Isola. then there are the notes-with cryptic patterns including eight black horses dancing across a page-that look like mean nothing .but detectives kling,carella,and meyer know that with the deaf man,the seemingly meaningles always means something.something bad.and as late fall hurtles toward christmas, the deaf man is counting down the days,luring the cops of the 87th precinct with a series of taunting clues-all leading toward a horrifying act of reenge orchestrated by a psychopathic killer.
