Blackburn is a serial killer. But, like the rest of us, he confronts the same hypocrisies and frustrations of the world and, unable to help himself, or at the mercy of circumstance, he crosses a dangerous threshold--and he kills. In this novel, we meet many of his twenty-one victims: law enforcers, writers, adulterers, auto mechanics, and other liars. And each crime reveals another side of his psyche . . . and his disturbing rationale for murder.

Bradley Denton was born in Wichita, Kansas, in 1958. He is the author of several novels, including Blackburn, and two short story collections. He lives on the outskirts of Austin, Texas.
