This is Sidney Sheldon's thrilling first novel, repackaged to accompany his fascinating memoirs, "The Other Side of Me". The psychiatrist's couch holds many secrets. Can it also hold the key to a series of brutal murders? John Hanson is murdered in the street in a gruesome but apparently arbitrary attack. Carol Roberts is brutally tortured and left to die in agony. Now it's the turn of psychoanalyst Dr Judd Stevens! In a chilling game of cat and mouse, Judd must become the hunter rather than the hunted if he wants to stay alive. Working with the mindset of a detective, he must analyse his patients, searching for a motive, clues, reasons. Could it be Teri Washburn, Hollywood starlet, thrown out of tinsel town in scandal and now addicted to sex? Could it be Harrison Burke, top business man and disturbed paranoiac? Or could it be Alexander Fallon, a crazed evangelist, convinced that God has chosen him to avenge all sin in the world? In this deadly game, there can only be one winner! If Judd is to survive, he must play the game to win. This is Sidney Sheldon's first novel - a gripping, intense thriller that brought him fame as a bestselling novelist.
A master storyteller, Sidney Sheldon is the author of seventeen novels (which have sold over 300 million copies), over 200 television scripts, twenty-five major motion pictures and six Broadway plays, ranking him as one of the world's most prolific writers.
