Larabeth McLeod has beauty, money, several patents, a Ph.D., a successful environmental firm, and some very old secrets. When a man with the uncomfortable name of Babykiller begins stalking her, terrorizing her with stories of her darkest days in Vietnam, she feels compelled to fight back…until he exposes her most tender secret of all by threatening the daughter she has never met.
She turns to private detective J.D. Hatten for help, breaking five years of separation and silence between quarreling friends. And then Babykiller shows his true capabilities. If she goes to the police for protection, people will die. Lots and lots of people will die. And one of them will be her daughter.
Larabeth and J.D. are just a normal man and woman, up against a babykiller. But then, maybe Babykiller picked the wrong people to play his twisted game…
