When Mark Styler, a writer of glossy "true crime" paperbacks, tries to get an interview with Easterman, a notorious serial killer, he has no idea what he is walking into. First he has to get past Dr. Farquhar, the quixotic head of Fairfields - the asylum wher Easterman is kept. But soon he discovers that nothing is what it seems. Who is the mysterious Borson?
