When a mindless act of violence changed his life forever, James Dewitt decided to become a cop. Carmel's lone police detective, he had hoped his new post would ease the memories of his wife's death . . . until the man he blames for it appears -- hot on the heels of an ingeniously disguised murder. Shackled by a web of red tape and corruption, Dewitt now fights desperately to solve a string of murders cleverly staged to look like suicides. Submerged in the deranged world of the psychopathic mind, Dewitt struggles to outwit the killer -- the man they call the "trapper" -- before it's too late.
