Book Description


St. Martin's: NY 1995 First edition, first printing, new/unread in flawless dustjacket.

On the grounds of Washington's National Cathedral, during a fierce midnight windstorm, the police find a young woman with her throat shredded by human teeth. Soon, other victims follow. When hematologist Dr. Katherine O'Keefe examines traces of the killer's own blood left on the grisly wounds, she makes a strange discovery: The cells refuse to die. Even more troubling, the evidence mirrors the symptoms of one of her patients, a young girl desperately ill with what seems to be leukemia, but isn't. Dr. O'Keefe's former lover and father of her child, police detective Merrick Chapman, suspects he knows who is slaughtering these women - a hemophage, the victim of a bizarre medical phenomenon in which the body craves infusions of fresh blood. And the reason for Chapman's conviction? Unbeknownst to anyone else, he himself has the condition. When Dr. O'Keefe is called in to help with the investigation, she puts herself in terrible danger as she edges closer to uncovering the killer's identity - and Chapman's secret. Determined to prevent the woman he loves from becoming the next victim, Chapman must find this carrier of the ancient curse. It may be someone closer to him than he realizes.
