A predator is loose and nobody has a clue how to catch him. Nobody until a
schizophrenic, middle aged loser teams up with a childhood friend and his military
alumnus decide that it's their mission to bring him down.
Forty-six year old Mark was always called a loser. Diagnosed with schizophrenia when
he was 19 his only real friend was in Arizona fulfilling his duties as a sheriff. Suddenly
this loser starts to hear other voices in his head. Voices that aren't normal to him. What
the voices tell him and what he hears help his friend catch a college co-ed predator.
The author brings you along a roller coaster ride of suspense as Mark makes the decision
to make something of himself and finally serve a purpose to the human race. He, along
with his friend in Arizona and his friend's former airborne comrade turned FBI agent try
to apprehend a serial killer that can outwit the best of those looking for him. Will they
complete their mission or will the killer get away only to strike again?
A quick, thrilling novel of suspense you can't put it down until the end. Long enough to
give an intense storyline but short enough to take along for a weekend trip or leisurely
day at the beach, this book will make you wonder what happened to the college days
gone by when drinking on campus ended in passing out in your dorm room, not dead at
the hands of a mad man.

This coming-of-age story depicts how the young man experiences the cost of freedom firsthand.
