London England, Piatkus, 1998. First Edition, Binding: Boards, Fine/Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 0749904151 Hardback On the surface I had nothing in common with a psychotic drifter. But in my heart I knew I wasn't entirely different from him. He was homeless: I was uncomfortable in my own home, even in my own skin. He was plagued by voices; I was tortured by memories. How much and what kind of pain, I wondered would it take to push me over the edge of sanity? Forensic psychologist Frank Clevenger is closer than most to understanding his personal demons. They give him a unique insight into the minds of the criminally insane it's his job to study.But neither his career nor his rational understanding even begin to help him deal with his problems. Clevenger is so deep into dependency - on drink, drugs, gambling, sex - it doesn't look as if he'll ever be free. Hired by the police departement to assess the competency of a homeless schizophrenic accused of murder and mutilation, he realises this may be his last chance to get it right. Then another desecrated corpse turns up. And so Clevenger is caught up in the search for a killer whose mind he can read as if it were his own..A dark, erotic and disturbing psychological thriller.
