Philadelphia has been plagued by a serial killer dubbed the Plate Glass Killer by the media…until the police finally catch a break: Henry Tyder, the scion of a prominent Main Line family, is found literally with blood on his hands at the scene of the most recent murder. After more than a year of anguish, the city can now rest assured.

But even though Tyder has made a confession, his own attorney has doubts. How could the alcoholic, frequently homeless Tyder have committed this crime—as well as the others? Enter Gregor Demarkian, retired head of the FBI’s Behavioral Sciences Unit, who’s been asked to look into the case.

Gregor’s evaluation of Tyder turns up a grim truth: The police have got the wrong guy. But why would Tyder lie? Who is he trying to protect? If wrestling with this case weren’t enough, Gregor is still trying to make sense of the mysterious reappearance of his estranged girlfriend…and keep them all out of harm’s way while the real Plate Glass Killer remains at-large.

Book Excerpts

Read an Excerpt

Chapter 1
Sometimes Henry Tyder thought that the real problem would always be the blood. Bodies could be stashed under tables or cut up and put into trunks. You could take pieces off them or settle for pieces of clothing instead, in case you were worried about how you were going to smell on the bus. Evidence was nothing at all. Evidence was what you made it be. If you wanted it, you went and got it. If you wanted to get rid of it, you had only to point out that you were who and what you were: living on the street half the time; drunk to the gills half the time; out of your mind half the time.
