It is 1965. The body parts of a young woman are accidentally discovered in the research lab of a Connecticut Ivy League university. As the killer becomes more diabolical and the body count rises, Investigator Carmine Delmonico finds himself faced with a savvy rapist/killer. Since the art of detection using profiling and forensics is not yet far advanced, Delmonico must develop his own theories. Lewis Grenville gives an understated reading of this truly bloodcurdling mystery, but his slow pacing and comfortable voice prove too laid-back for the mayhem. Still, as Delmonico searches for "the Ghost," sorting through a large cast of potential suspects and red herrings, McCullough's clever plotting will keep listeners guessing.
