This is the third mystery novel in a series of four about the Sanderson family and their adventures. You have an ordinary family with numerous friends and an international assassin coming after them. Michael DuMonde, a truly psychotic killer, the man who kills for the sport of it, has recently murdered a young man and is poised to kill again. But he ends up being shot and gravely wounded. What ensues is a deep maze into the twisted psyche of a man who murders because he likes it.
The results are profound, but he escapes from custody again. The story line convalutes in directions one would never expect and the only way to end the madness is to capture him. But after over thirty years of terror, can he be caught? We'll know his fate in the final book, "Murder and Pasta Don't Mix", which will conclude the series. This is one man I wouldn't want to be friends with.
