"He sits in the woods holding her hand." This sentence is the first of many clever ploys that make this book a stand-out among serial-killer novels. You could say it's just one gimmick after another: Missing body parts, lipstick on corpses, sexual obsessions, implications of incest, reek of rotting flesh in a shabby motel room, small children trying pathetically to be brave; And yet as shameless as Martin is, you'll give him credit for pulling it off with panache. I recommend that you try your darndest to figure out the mystery too. The answer is deeply weird!

Excellent book. While the story is sick and twisted and definitely not for the squeamish it has a great plot and is very fast moving. I did not want to put it down once I started. While I was able to figure out some of the plot, other things took me completely by surprise. Excellent SS book!!! I will be looking for more books by this author.

Mary and Jonathan Gaetan were the essence of elegance. He was a powerful businessman; she was beautiful, sexy, young. Then, in a night of terror, a madman broke into their suburban Washington mansion. When it was over, Jonathan Gaetan lay dead and mutilated in a bathtub of his own blood. Mary told the police nothing about an intruder. Instead, she claimed her husband had killed himself.

Detective Teddy Camel used to be known as the human lie detector, until too much liquor and too many regrets did the machine in. Now Teddy is ont eh Gaetan case, obsessed with Mary's beauty and the truth he knows she is not telling. What happened in that house? Teddy is determined to find out-even if it is a truth too horrifying to speak...
