From Arizona to Colorado to the streets of San Francisco during its calamitous earthquake and fire, he pursues a fiend who seems to draw pleasure from the challenge and a woman who may to hold the key to the man s identity. As Bell begins to suspect a new term used among top psychologists, sociopath, may describe his target, the Butcher Bandit turns the chase around on him. The hunter becomes the hunted. And soon, it will take all of Bell s skills not merely to prevail . . . but to survive. Filled with intricate plotting, Cussler s signature dazzling set pieces, and not one but two extraordinary villains, The Chase is the master working at the height of his powers."
