Book Description

From Publishers Weekly In this sequel to Diehl's Primal Fear, an incarcerated serial killer's enemies begin meeting grisly deaths. Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc. Read more From Library Journal Diehl, the author of previous hits Chameleon (1982) and Sharky's Machine (1978), has the makings of another best seller here. Defense attorney-turned-district attorney Martin Vail comes to regret having saved a murderer, Aaron Stampler, from the death penalty; Stampler wasn't suffering from multiple personality disorder but was merely a vicious killer who has many more scores to settle. When Stampler proves smart enough to convince an egotistical psychiatrist that he is now sane and can return to society, Vail has to out-think him to save not only his own life but the lives of everyone who contributed to the killer's ten years in a mental institution. The action is gripping, and the characters are well drawn. Buy for suspense collections and for Diehl's established fans.--Marylaine Block, St. Ambrose Univ.
