Summary
  • "From celebrated authors Amy Hempel and Jill Ciment writing as A.J. Rich, a smart, thrilling, sexy, and emotionally riveting novel of psychological suspense about an accomplished woman involved with a man who proves to be an imposter. Morgan Prager, at age thirty, is completing her thesis on victim psychology at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in Manhattan. She is newly engaged to Bennett, a seductive but possessive and secretive man. She returns from class one day to find Bennett mauled to death, and her dogs--a Great Pyrenees and two pit bulls she has rescued--covered in blood. Bewildered and devastated that her dogs could have committed such violence, she worries that she might suffer from one of the syndromes she studies: pathological altruism, when selfless acts do more damage than good. When Morgan tries to locate Bennett's parents to tell them about their son's hideous death, she discovers he was not the man he said he was. Everything he has told her--where he was born, where he lives and works--was a lie. In fact, he has several fiance;es, and fits the clinical definition of a sociopath. And then, one by one, these other women are murdered. Suddenly Morgan's research into Bennett takes on the urgency of survival: to stay alive, she must find out who is killing the women Bennett was closest to. Unsettling and highly suspenseful, this is a brilliant collaboration between two outstanding writers"--
  • "Morgan Russell, 30, is completing her thesis on victim psychology at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and newly engaged to Bennett, a man more possessive than those she has dated in the past, but also more chivalrous--and the sex is hot. She returns from class one day to find Bennett brutally killed, and her dogs--a Great Pyrenees, and two pit bulls she was fostering--covered in blood. Bewildered and devastated that her dogs could have committed such violence, she worries that she might suffer from one of the syndromes she studies--pathological altruism: when selfless acts do more damage than good. When Morgan tries to locate Bennett's parents to tell them about their son's hideous death, she discovers that everything he has told her--where he was born, where he lives in Montreal, where he works--was a lie. He is not the man he said he was. In fact, he fits the clinical definition of a sociopath, and he had several fiance all believing the same promises he gave Morgan. And then, one by one, these other women are murdered. Morgan's research into Bennett has taken on an urgency: in order to stay alive, she must find out how an intelligent woman like herself, who studies predators, becomes a victim. Sexy, disturbing, and highly suspenseful, this is a brilliant collaboration between two outstanding writers"--
