Even madness has its season
Psychology professor Denton Reed has been pulled out of the classroom to find a killer. Bodies are turning up all over the quiet town of Bexhill. They are found dismembered and burned beyond recognition in a snow covered farmer’s field, by the abandoned mill, and under the train bridge. The only clue linking the victims is the bizarre figure eight patterns left behind in their homes.
Denton must use his unique profiling techniques to uncover the murderer, who the police have dubbed Mr. 8. The deeper he digs into the mystery, the more apparent it becomes that nothing is as it appears. Each of the victims was seized by dark obsessions and inexplicable changes in behavior before their deaths. And they may be even more dangerous than the killer.
As a wave of insanity sweeps the town, Denton will risk his own life to get to the source of the madness and risk all to protect the woman he loves.
But is it already too late?
