Dr. Charlene “Charlie” Stone’s first case with the HPD Sexual Assault Task Force involves an urgent hunt for a fiendish sexual sadist called the Trainer, who is kidnapping professional women with long, blond hair and programming them to obey men. The Trainer targets Charlie as his next victim. Her courage is tested as never before when she is trapped in his lair.

Deadly Lessons is the second novel in the Charlie Stone crime-thriller series. The first is Deadly Compulsion, where Charlie Stone begins her career as a part-time profiler for the Huntsville Police Department and pursues the Huntress, a serial killer who lures men back to their homes to murder them.
