Discovering a link between a series of killings among the families of rich clients and a handsome architect who was hired to design their homes, forensic psychiatrist Frank Clevenger embarks on a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse.

McMillan Palgrave
West Crosse is a stunningly brilliant, strikingly handsome architect with a love of ideal beauty and a commitment to achieving it at any cost. But the rich, powerful families who secretly engage him to design their homes don't know his dark side: Crosse can't stop at designing their dwellings. He needs to make their lives more perfect, too, even if it means a gut rehab of the family, even if the final design takes years to achieve--murdering an abusive spouse, a toxic lover, a predatory business partner or an unwanted child. As Crosse is about to embark on the master work or his creative life, the FBI puts Frank Clevenger on the case, and the ultimate cat and mouse game begins.


Blackwell North Amer
West Crosse, educated at Yale, member of the ultra-elite Order of Skull and Bones, is a stunningly brilliant, strikingly handsome architect with a love of ideal beauty and commitment to achieving it at any cost. But his clients don't know his dark side: Crosse can't stop at designing their dwellings. He needs to make their lives more perfect too, even if it means reshaping the structure of their families, even if the final design takes years to achieve - murdering an abusive spouse, a toxic lover, a predatory business partner, or an unwanted child.
As Crosse is about to embark on the masterwork of his creative life, the FBI puts forensic psychiatrist Dr. Frank Clevenger on the case, and the ultimate cat-and-mouse game begins. Clevenger's investigation will lead him toward still-open murder cases around the nation, into the darkest corners of a madman's soul, and face-to-face with his own demons.
