The Final Alibi Publisher's Summary

A new monster is here to keep you up at night. In the tradition of The Silence of the Lambs comes a killer with an appetite.

Harry Lightman, known as the Daylesford Devil by the press and dubbed "Lucifer" by the locals, has been sitting in a prison cell for the best part of 20 years, sentenced to life imprisonment for the torture and murder of 14 women. Each one had been preyed upon by a monster that fed on the flesh of his victims, the peaceful country towns reeling from the terror that had stalked their communities. Now, on the eve of the first victim's 20-year anniversary, a new killer has taken up where the Devil left off, his victims dying in the same horrific circumstances as his predecessor's, the trademark signature announcing its horrific return with bloody consequences. But is it really a new killer or does Lucifer have the perfect alibi?

The authorities have no leads, no clues, and no time as they enlist the help of the original police officer, Jim Lawson, now a respected and sought-after psychiatrist, who felled the devil the first time. Has Lucifer truly returned, killing from behind the walls, or is another vying for his title? Only Jim can face the devil and hope to learn his secret. Together with the young and beautiful police constable, Stephanie Connor, Jim is fighting the devil, the clock and the hierarchy, to piece together the clues and end the killing before another fall's victim.

Does the Devil have his final alibi?
