DEADLY COMPULSION

BY SHIRLEY B. GARRETT

Dr. Charlene "Charlie" Stone, a local psychologist, begins her profiling career by assisting the Huntsville Police in the pursuit of a serial killer. Men are seduced in local night clubs and luried back to their homes, where they are beaten and mutilated. The gruesome murders haunt Charlie's dreams and trigger sleepwalking episodes. With three victims already brutally slaughtered, the killer is still on the prowl. Due to building circumstantial evidence, Charlie finds she is a suspect and banned from the case. She begins her unsanctioned search for the killer to clear her name and to stop the bloodshed.
