Matt said, "The envelope the clerk gave you has everything you need to know. The schedules and everything is in there."
"I guess my dad will soon have his men looking for me," Adrian said.
Matt responded, "I'm sure of it. You can bet that as soon as we release the news, the ball will start rolling. Just take it easy. Take your time and do it right."
Adrian said, "I sure hope things turn out. I'm not used to this cloak and dagger stuff."

An unusual compelling story...Feb, 4th, 2004

Patrick Schnerch has created an unusual, action filled story with a rare blend of character-study and suspence. I like novels about serial killers, and once I started this one, I couldn't put it down. It is much more than a serial rapist and murderer on the loose. Adrian with his mental problems, is a fascinating, likeable character. The reader will experience the story vividly through the mind of this mentally distuebed individual as he works his way through all the clever twists and turns of the plot.
