The first victim, brutally assaulted, literally dies of
fright in the ER, and Dr. Julie Charmaine must find out
why. A psychiatrist, advocate for battered women and noted
sleep researcher, Dr. Charmaine has only two clues to the
beautiful young woman's death: she reeks of the city sewers
and her last word was the Spanish slang for monkey.
Meanwhile, Vicki Zambisi, tormented by twin memories of
terror and lost love begins an odyssey of vengeance. But
when she is attacked in the run-down hotel where she was
betrayed, she is put under the care of Dr. Charmaine, and
her dreams reveal that there's more to the man the LA
police have dubbed the "Sewer Stalker" than Vicki is
letting on while awake.
Eager investors have rewarded Dr. Wesley Kovacs lavishly
for his groundbreaking cryonics research. Now, though he
publicly supports a form of immortality, Kovacs will let
nothing stand between him and the Nobel Prize.
For in an experiment gone horribly awry, Kovacs holds the
key to the "Sewer Stalker," the bizarre hybrid creature who
lusts insatiably for beautiful women . . . and now pursues
both Julie and her patient.
Navigating the turbulent waters of immortality and bringing
man's unquenchable desire to live forever to the streets
and sewers of Los Angeles, Alan Nayes lives up to the
reputation he established in the critically acclaimed
Gargoyles by providing another edge-of-your-seat thriller
that will keep readers up all night.
