The Wire in the Blood : Young girls are disappearing around the country, and there is nothing to connect them to one another, let alone the killer whose charming manner hides a warped and sick mind. Head of the new National Profiling Task Force, Dr. Tony Hill sets his team an exercise: they are given the details of missing teenagers and asked to discover any possible links between the cases. Only one officer comes up with a theory - a theory that is ridiculed by the group . . . until one of their number is murdered and mutilated. For Tony Hill, the murder becomes a matter of personal revenge, and, joined again by colleague Carol Jordan, he embarks on a campaign of psychological terrorism - a game where hunter and hunted can be all too easily reversed.
