Now it's time for Rainie to return the favor. But this killer is like none these two hard-boiled pros have ever encountered. This twisted psychopath has an insatiable hunger for revenge...and for fear.

She will be... the next accident.


Each time he struck, he took two victims. Day after day, he waited for the first body to be discovered--a body containing all the clues the investigators needed to find the second victim, who waited...prey to a slow but certain death. The clock ticked--salvation was possible. The police were never in time. Years have passed; but for this killer, time has stood still.

One man knows what happened that night. Adopting the alias of a killer caught eighty years before, he has already contacted the press.

KIRKUS REVIEW Very good popular history centering on three members of the family whose name summons up visions of devious menu manipulations at dinner parties. Chamberlin, a responsible and fastidious chronicler of the period, not only clarifies for the alert but non-scholarly reader some chaotic wars between the Italian states, but offers a sane, careful scrutiny of Pope Alexander IV (Rodrigo Borgia), his son Cesare (Machiavelli's Prince) and Lucretia. By isolating unsubstantiated rumor, by viewing the more unsavory Borgia activities in the light of political realities of the time, and quietly including contemporary accounts from the more reliable sources, Chamberlin is able to illuminate the extraordinary power of the Borgias. Pope Alexander was, for example, a consummate politician ("". . . he never missed,"" recorded his secretary in an aside ""a Consistory in thirty-seven years"") and he ""brought to the business of being Pope a certain gusto. . . the product of immense self-confidence."" One of the most conspicuous features of his papacy was the determination to further the interests of his children, notably Cesare, whom Machiavelli saw as ""a man of splendor and magnificence"" and others saw as a ""blood-maddened fiend."" It is in Cesare's military and political career -- a web of alliances and overnight reverses, campaigns and abrupt consolidations -- that Chamberlin's cool narrative style faces its severest test. Lucretia receives less attention, but it is obvious that the author feels that her myth has overrun reality. Chamberlin picks through the evidence and rumor concerning some prime Borgia enigmas: did Alexander ""buy"" his papacy? Who murdered brother Juan? Who is really who in the Pinturicchio portraits? The answers, more often than not, are blowing in that long ago wind, but Chamberlin's shrugs are graceful and stylish. An excellent general addendum to Renaissance studies.
