It all got terribly confusing when the Deaf Man
put in an appearance….
…and the criminal mastermind is making his presence
known by the dead bodies that are turning up around Isola. Then
there are the notes - with cryptic patterns including eight black
horses dancing across a page - that look like they mean nothing.
But Detectives Kling, Carella, and Meyer know that with the Deaf
Man, the seemingly meaningless always means something. Something
bad. And as late fall hurtles toward Christmas, the Deaf Man is
counting down the days, luring the cops of the 87th Precinct
with a series of taunting clues - all leading toward a horrifying
act of revenge orchestrated by a psychopathic killer.
The Deaf Man returns in Ed McBain's
