Cooper North is called back as prosecutor, to deal with bizarre events.


An alligator is scaring shoppers on Main Street. Psychopaths costumed as Ninjas go on a commando-knife killing binge. Yellow-jacket wasps hidden in an allergic maple-syrup entrepeneur's jacket sleeves--a murder.


Cooper is sixty-nine, tall, almost gaunt, with the eyes of a falcon--she sees you, and she sees into you. On the hunt, she's relentless.


This time Cooper and her police colleagues most sort through a collection of odd characters, as they follow twisting trails. And then Cooper finds herself facing the greatest danger of her life.


You won't guess the end.
