Fromthe back of the book:
A killer stalks the deep South, terrifying citizens from Memphis to New Orleans to Mobile. Te FBI has set up local headquarters along the Mississippi Gulf Coast to try to put a stop to the madness. It hasn't worked.
When a young police lieutenant in a sleepy Mississippi coast town responds to a routine prowler call one night, he isn't expecting to find the handiwork of the killer. But his grisly discovery is just the beginning of a horrible nightmare...a nightmare that may kill him and his wife.
