Things go terribly wrong during an interview break, and Pell, after badly injuring Dance's fellow California Bureau of Investigation agent and murdering several bystanders, escapes. The murder was just one of his many schemes to allow him to travel outside of his high-security prison - and to continue to kill on the outside.
It's up to Dance, aided by her CBI partners, a Monterey County detective, and a brilliant FBI agent specializing in cult mentality, to stop him before he kills again. Hungry on his trail, Dance enlists three of Pell's former female followers, now raising families and leading normal lives, as well as the one surviving family member from the initial killing. Only eight years old at the time, she was asleep in her bed and obscured by her toys and stuffed animals, prompting the press to call her "The Sleeping Doll". Now 18, this girl may have essential clues about Pell.

"Deaver digs into his bottomless bag of unexpected twists and turns, keeping readers wide-eyed with surprise, and leaving them looking forward to more of the perspicacious Dance." (Publishers Weekly)
Like??What? What I read is obvious..I am a computer programmer from before we had computers (APL anyone?) I just saw a coyote in our canyon
Which is the obvious. I don't know if I missed it or it wasn't on the description. I never buy abridged knowingly because t h e context I d important to the story. Jeffrey Deaver books always have misworded phrases, and I live with it because I appreciate his stories and am attached to many of his characters. This is a good story. Well done; I like it a lot. I very unhappy about the abridged version. I could l dent figure out what was wrong until I heard at the end credits that it was abridged.
