Synopsis

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
 
It came in a plain brown wrapper, no return address—an audiocassette recording of a horrifying, soul-lacerating scream, followed by the sound of a childlike voice chanting: “Bad love. Bad love. Don’t give me the bad love.” For Alex Delaware the tape is the first intimation that he is about to enter a living nightmare. Others soon follow: disquieting laughter echoing over a phone line that suddenly goes dead, and a chilling act of trespass and vandalism. He has become the target of a carefully orchestrated campaign of vague threats and intimidation rapidly building to a crescendo as harassment turns to terror, mischief to madness.
 
“A wonderful, roller-coaster ride . . . a guaranteed page-turner.”—USA Today
 
With the help of his friend, LAPD detective Milo Sturgis, Alex uncovers a series of violent deaths that may follow a diabolical pattern. And if he fails to decipher the twisted logic of the stalker’s mind games, Alex will be the next to die.

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Jonathan Kellerman's Guilt.

People

The mystery, Delaware soon deduces, goes back to a 1979 symposium in Los Angeles that nobody wanted to attend—a tribute to the psychiatrist Andres de Bosch and the de Boschian theory of Good Love/Bad Love.
