Inhaltsangabe: "I first killed in obedience, because Daddy wanted me to and ? face it--Daddy always gets what he wants. Next, I killed from necessity. Self defense. In defense of the self -- the self I never had an opportunity to know or become. But now! Now I kill because I want to. Because it pleases me. Because I must protect the defenseless of these hallowed hills from all that is vile and profane." Strong, intelligent, and painstakingly cautious, she stalks, seduces, and then savages the sportsmen who flock to Durango, Colorado to fill their annual urge for wildness. The mighty San Juan Mountains are the only mother she?s ever known so she knows every trail, every freshet and stream, the best hunting and fishing locales and, like all conscientious champions of the wild, she obeys the laws of the forest: pack it in; pack it out, and leave no trace. La Plata County Sheriff Dan Biscayne came to Durango for the quiet life after burning out in the hardness of Houston Homicide. He now finds himself chasing a serial sexual murderer, and this one is a woman -- a rare and volatile situation. Of course, he has a town full of suspects since Durango attracts the athletic, strong, committed and focused men and women devoted to outdoor and extreme sports. Possible suspects include two psychologists, a high altitude distance runner, a reporter for the local paper, and an amnesiac actress who gets drunk and hangs out in rough bars armed and clothed in angry black leather. Biscayne, pressured by the Mayor and City Council, knows he's got to piece together the bloody puzzle before Durango starts to lose its bread ?n butter tourism. Though it sticks in his craw, he finally consults local psychiatrist, Dr. Quinn Matthews, who has worked with the FBI on the study of serial murder and helped develop the process of criminal profiling. Matthews calls in his mentor, Duke Marvel, a Director at the profiling unit at Quantico, Virginia. How quickly will their combined efforts identify this very smart killer? How many more will die brutally before they do? When the killer ups the ante by taking hostages, two of which are Biscayne?s adolescent sons, the hunt becomes very personal and Dan simply can?t wait for the FBI.
