In Westlake's chilling novel, a man named John Ax has a dark secret. For years he's been abducting and murdering women, dismembering them and hiding their body parts all around his rural home. One day, a reporter named Ann Gallagher comes to town to investigate a series of murders that have been plaguing the town. Gallagher is a bright, ambitious reporter, and she's determined to find out what's behind the Ax murders. The more she investigates, the more she realizes that Ax is a very different man from the one she thought she knew. He's secretive and reclusive, and he seems to have a hidden agenda. As Gallagher starts to piece together the secrets of Ax, she finds herself in danger not just from Ax himself, but from the people in the town who are willing to do anything to keep him hidden. Westlake's chilling novel is a twisting, suspenseful tale of obsession and violence.; 8vo.
