In coastal Delaware, a serial killer who calls himself the Game Master has been stashing his victims' bones in underwater crab traps. Soon after he murders a student of Dr. Elizabeth Clarke in her office at upscale Somerville College, Lizzy begins to receive ominous phone calls, "gifts" of funeral wreaths and dead animals, and visits from a marauder who steals nothing, yet makes his presence inside her home known. Lizzy is suspicious of three people-a smarmy grad student, the security expert who's her best friend and her ex-boyfriend, the ex-con Jack Rafferty.
Great mystery,keeps you guessing right up to the end.
