But with a trail of bodies behind him and an active fire at his back, will Percy be seen as a master criminal and thrown in a cell? And what of Doctor Carruthers, the man fated to destroy himself for Roger's twisted cause? The clock is ticking and Percy is drawing ever closer to the conclusion of his case.
