Fast paced and to the point describes this heart pounding thriller. Mary Ann Bailey left the big city police department to become the chief of police of her small home town in Ohio. It would be a perfect retirement job for her while her husband spent his retirement from the city fire department working his family farm. Little did she know her world would be torn apart and her sanity compromised by the appearance of a serial killer. The evil that erupted in the small town of Bering Heights left the crime in the big city looking pale in comparison. The killer enjoys toying with the police in more brutal ways than one can imagine. Could the serial killer really be a resident of this closely knit community? Would the terror end when he is caught? Will Mary Ann ever be the same again or will her nightmares get the best of her?
