In her teenaged years, Evelyn loved and trusted her boyfriend.  A boyfriend  who ended up killing her two best friends, then tortured her for 3 days, slit her throat and left her for dead.  After that Evelyn’s future had been determined.  Evelyn needed to know what made psychopaths do what they did?  How could they appear to be like any other human being and then turn into monsters with no conscience, and/or feel no remorse for the terror they delivered unto their victims?

Now 25 years later as an adult and renowned psychiatrist Evelyn has worked tirelessly to establish a center strictly for the study of solving the mysteries of the antisocial psychopath mind.   Naturally, it took years but finally a site had been selected to build this facility where she could gather some of the worst criminal minds together to be studied.  The place, a remote Alaskan town called Hilltop, Alaska and the facility would be called Hanover House.  As expected  – most all the inhabitants of Hilltop were not happy including State Trooper, Sergeant Amarok who was one of the few police officers who was in charge of keeping the people of Hilltop safe.

While Amarok could empathize with Evelyn’s childhood history and  even though attracted to her, he does not see having all these psychopaths settled nearby his town as a good thing.  While the facility is being built and Evelyn is still putting it all together, her ex-boyfriend who had never been caught from 25 years ago and was still obsessed with her was making plans to finish what he started.

*** Actually this was just the introduction to the Hanover House series and it gives all the background and insights as to just what is going on as well as re-introduces the sick mind of Evelyn’s nemesis and tormentor. It is definitely an edge-of-your-seat suspense and highly addictive tome to those who like myself are fascinated by the genius minds of some of the worst criminals humanity has to offer.    Bottom line:  This is a series you don’t want to miss!!
