Forgive Me, Alex [Psychological Suspense Thriller]
Two personalities, two attitudes, two goals, two methods--one darkness.
Tony Hooper stands in shadow across the street, one amongst many in the crowd of curiosity-hounds gathered to watch a monster's release. Seventeen years after Mitchell Norton, the devil, terrorized Algonquin, Illinois on a spree of kidnapping, torture and murder, the authorities release the butcher from psychiatric prison.
Tony longs to charge across the street to destroy Norton--no remorse--as if stepping on a cockroach. Only sheer force of will prevents his doing so.
The devil walks the world again. What shall Tony do about it? Aye, what indeed.
After all, this is what Tony does. It's who he is. The devil himself long ago made Tony into this hunter of monsters. What a sweet twist of fate this is, that he may still, finally, administer justice.
Will FBI Special Agent Linda Monroe stop him? She owes him her life, so how can she possibly put an end to his?
Two men are inexorably linked in the wake of devastation, ripped from the comfortable world they know and thrown into a dark place previously unimaginable. One is driven to evil, to seek a world where unfathomable misery and unbearable pain are the rules of the realm, where the look of death is upon all who practice the wicked craft, and it is a joyful grin, indeed. The other is driven to a gray path where he seeks merely to destroy such incomprehensible evil, to do what the law is not always able to do, to remove from the world the men who become monsters.
