Combining explosive suspense with sensual passion, the bestselling author of Carnal Innocence and The Reef turns up the heat in this classic tale, available for the first time in hardcover-the sizzling story of a man and woman on the trail of a demented killer... and on the verge of surrendering to a dangerous love.

In the last lazy days of summer, the merciless two-week heat wave is the biggest story in Washington, D.C. But the weather is finally knocked off the front pages when a young woman is found strangled to death-a priest's white silk amice pulled taut around her throat. Pinned near the scarf is a note that simply reads her sins are forgiven her. It is a chilling crime, made even more terrifying when it is followed by a second murder... and then a third. Suddenly every headline is devoted to the killer the press has dubbed "the Priest."
The slayings have piqued the interest of Dr. Tess Court, a top-notch psychiatrist dedicated to treating the problems of the human mind.

And when the police make little headway in solving the crimes, Tess is reluctantly thrust into the very heart of the investigation. Called in to create a detailed psychological profile of the murderer, she comes up with a disturbing and frightening portrait of a twisted soul who believes he is not murdering-but ministering.

Detective Ben Paris doesn't give a damn about the killer's soul or his psyche, and he makes it clear that he thinks calling in a psychiatrist is on a par with ringing up a psychic hot line.

What he can't dismiss so readily is his immediate and irresistible attraction to Tess. Tall, dark, and good-looking, Ben has a reputation with women that is legendary, and with good reason. But the coolly elegant Tess doesn't react to Ben like any other woman he's ever known-and he finds the challenge enticing. Now, as the two are thrown together in a perilous quest to stop a serial killer, the flame of white-hot passion flares. But someone else has his eyes on the beautiful blond doctor... someone who dreams of saving her and cleansing her soul with his special brand of absolution. And while Tess is confident she can help him, Ben can only pray that when the madman strikes, he'll be able to stop him before it's too late....

Listener Opinions

    " Considering how much I enjoy the JD Robb series, I was disappointed with this Nora Roberts title. I was particularly taken with how dated this novel feels (not the fault of the author, certainly). For example, the male protagonist smokes constantly, including inside the police station. "

    " Good book. Quick read. Love Tess and Ben. More argument here and there. Usual Nora Roberts's plot and character. "

    " Not my favorite Nora Roberts title. Seemed a bi skeletal in character development and in plot and sometimes a bit disjointed. "
