He's every policeman's worst nightmare - the killer who leads an innocuous and apparently blameless family life. His next murder can't be predicted: even he doesn't know when it is going to be. He roams the motorways, attacking breakdown victims who wait alone for help to arrive. Interwoven with his story is that of two people: the young policeman who loses the support of his colleagues during the murder hunt, battling even with his more experienced partner; and the Searcher. In the Searcher, Chris Simms has created a character who ranks alongside the best of Ruth Rendell's classic portrayals of psychological cripples. The author's depiction of the murderer's unravelling mind, the young policeman's self-doubt and the Searcher's strange obsession creates a darkly compelling psychological drama. As the book moves inexorably forward, all three are drawn together in a final meeting.
