Adopted off the streets as a little girl by a police inspector and his wife, Kathleeen Mallory is still not altogether civilized, even though she is now a Sergeant with the Special Crimes Section. With ferocious intelligence, Mallory operates by her own inner compass of what's right and wrong. She is a thing apart. And today, she is a thing possessed.
