As the investigation proceeds, the murderer loses no time stalking new prey: a loan officer and her high-earning husband, a couple who made a killing in the stock market, a pretty actress and her prosperous lover.With the body count rising, it's up to Quinn to unlock the mystery of a madman's past and end his bloody reign. Quinn's got his work cut out--because in a city the size of New York, any one of 8 million faces could be that of a killer--or his next target. . .Praise for John Lutz and The Night Spider",Lutz offers up a heart-pounding roller-coaster of a tale.",--Jeffery Deaver",I've been a fan of John Lutz for years.",--T.
