Well written Robin Cook style medical thriller. Dr Julie Charmaine has a new patient who seems to be connected with a slew of murders commited by the Sewer Man. Can she and Det Matt Guardian figure out where the killer will strike next or will Julie be the next victim. An excellent way to spend a day in the sun! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0765306131, Hardcover)

The first victim, brutally assaulted, literally dies of fright in the ER, and Dr. Julie Charmaine must find out why. A psychiatrist, advocate for battered women and noted sleep researcher, Dr. Charmaine has only two clues to the beautiful young woman's death: she reeks of the city sewers and her last word was the Spanish slang for monkey.

Meanwhile, Vicki Zambisi, tormented by twin memories of terror and lost love begins an odyssey of vengeance. But when she is attacked in the run-down hotel where she was betrayed, she is put under the care of Dr. Charmaine, and her dreams reveal that there's more to the man the LA police have dubbed the "Sewer Stalker" than Vicki is letting on while awake.

Eager investors have rewarded Dr. Wesley Kovacs lavishly for his groundbreaking cryonics research. Now, though he publicly supports a form of immortality, Kovacs will let nothing stand between him and the Nobel Prize.

For in an experiment gone horribly awry, Kovacs holds the key to the "Sewer Stalker," the bizarre hybrid creature who lusts insatiably for beautiful women . . . and now pursues both Julie and her patient.

Navigating the turbulent waters of immortality and bringing man's unquenchable desire to live forever to the streets and sewers of Los Angeles, Alan Nayes lives up to the reputation he established in the critically acclaimed Gargoyles by providing another edge-of-your-seat thriller that will keep readers up all night.
