The Nightmare Thief, Paperback Book

The Nightmare Thief Paperback


In the California wilderness no one can hear you scream.San Francisco Forensic Psychiatrist Jo Beckett doesn't dissect the body or the crime scene - she dissects a life and a mind, recreating the victim as a person, piecing together the story of their death to get to the truth. And then she goes after the killer.Autumn Reiniger wants something special for her twenty-first birthday.

Daddy's bought her the car and the apartment, but now she wants excitement. And what Autumn desires, she gets.Her father signs-up her and five friends for an ultimate urban reality game. `Edge Adventures' alert the SF police that a `crime situation' is underway, so the authorities will ignore any squealing tyres or desperate cries for help.Then - when working on a case nearby - Jo Beckett encounters a group of men carting six sullen college kids to the woods for a wilderness adventure.

Suspicious, she takes a closer look. And winds up with an invite to a birthday party she may never leave ...
