'Timothy 'Moth' Turner is a postgrad student and recovering alcoholic. Estranged from his family, Moth's only lifeline is his uncle Ed, a recovered alcoholic and Moth's AA sponsor.
When Ed doesn't turn up for a meeting, Moth gets worried. And he has every right to be. Ed is found shot dead in his apartment in an apparent suicide.
Moth can't believe his uncle would take his own life. And soon, after a little bit of digging, Ed is on the trail of a psychopathic killer known only as Student #5. But why would he want to kill Ed? And who is next on his list...
In this clever cat-and-mouse thriller from bestseller Katzenbach (Red 1-2-3), the mysterious Student #5 has spent decades murdering people he believes got him banned from his chosen studies in abnormal psychology. His latest victim staged as a suicide is the uncle of Ph.D. student Timothy "Moth" Warner. An alcoholic, Moth just knows his uncle wouldn't kill himself. Enlisting the support of his ex-girlfriend Andy Candy and DA Susan Terry and with his AA group that meets in the church known as Redeemer One acting as casual advisers as the investigation progresses he begins his quest, which ranges from Massachusetts to Miami and Key West, to learn the truth and catch the mastermind. Slow at first, the book finally picks up momentum when paths cross and Student #5 suddenly realizes he now has a few more names to scratch off his death list. But the super-criminal won't find the easy marks as easy as they look.
