McEvoy investigates police suicides in other cities and discovers a sinister pattern: sex killings followed by the "suicide" of the detective on the case and a suicide note in the form of a poetic riddle. In this way McEvoy stumbles on the killer known to the FBI as The Poet, and teams up with a beautiful FBI agent to capture him. By the author of The Last Coyote
