Alex and Helen are both kidnapped giving Detective Chief Inspector Melanie Bray yet another high profile case to solve. In the course of the police enquiry into the missing persons it becomes apparent that Alex (an assistant bank manager) is involved in a massive bank robbery. The question that taxes the police is whether he is a willing accomplice or not. As the story unfolds a clear link between several rapes and the murders of prostitutes is established. Clearly one of the robbers is also a serial killer. However, as the evidence mounts D.C.I. Bray begins to realize to her horror that she is dealing with not only one but two psychopaths.One of three mentally strong and resilient female characters, Melanie Bray finally resolves the crimes in a bloody shoot-out at the house of a new friend, Dr. Charles Holland.Running through the plot is the story of a youth whose abusive upbringing turns his heart into “stone” as he learns to withdraw into himself for self-preservation. The resulting hatred of his parents inevitably concludes in their murder at his hands when he is only 10 years old. Paroled at the age of sixteen and with a new identity he is released back into society. Could it be that he is one of the psychopaths hunted by the police and also, therefore, one of the bank robbers? If so, which of the characters involved is he?
