He's a Russian defector given a new life in America by the U.S. government. Now he's exploded into violence--driven by a mad lust to kill young women.

An embarrassed CIA knows it must stop him--and that only one man can do the job.  But former agent Mike Culley is in prison, sold out by his bosses, stripped of his family and everything he holds dear.  Now they'll free him: to hunt down a killer before he kills again.

The CIA has betrayed Culley once.  It won't happen again.  He will find his man.  And with the help of a beautiful reporter, he'll bring him down.  But suddenly the rules change.  Culley's target has answered back: snatching the one person who means more to Mike Culley than life itself.
