Publisher's Summary

Hanson died quickly - with a knife in his back. Carole was next - covered with acid and tortured to death. Now it's Judd's turn - a New York pschoanalyst, he'd known them both. Two faceless executioners on a murderous mission, searching for a secret which is unknown to Judd. Not safe at home or at work, Judd feels his professional grip slipping while he faces constant threat of imminent attack. To whom can he ultimately turn? To the sharp-witted private eye he hired? To the two policeman watching, one with undisguised hostility? To his beautiful and mysterious new client who has taken hold of his heart?

A disturbing drama and the first novel from multi best-selling author Sidney Sheldon.

Poor recording quality

I enjoyed the story and will buy more Sidney Sheldon. The recording however was unprofessional - the volume and quality changed several times during the story. I'm surprised this slipped past Audibles quality control.

Very good Sheldon

Sidney Sheldon at his best. Full of surprises, good story, the reader suspects the wrong people - of course! A surprising end. Very well read.
The key character is a handsome and lonely psychoanalyst. People get killed for no apparent reason, the police suspects the shrink, there is a bad cop, a good cop,
a colourful detective that we hesitate how to classify, a beautiful and mysterious woman... Enjoy!
