Synopsis

Con Man

In December 1989, in upstate New York, Gary C. Evans, 35, a master of disguise and career criminal who had befriended David "Son of Sam" Berkowitz, began weaving a web of deadly lies. Evans told a female friend that Damien Cuomo, the father of her child, had deserted her. Of that he could be certain, since he'd killed Cuomo, and subsequently struck up a ten-year romance with the woman while tricking her into believing Cuomo was still alive.

Law Man

Evans first met New York State Police Senior Investigator James Horton in 1985, when Evans fingered Michael Falco, 26, as the brains behind their theft team--yet failed to mention that he'd murdered him. Then, two local jewelry dealers were killed. In 1997 Tim Rysedorph, 39, another old friend, went missing. Was Evans responsible? Horton launched a nationwide manhunt to uncover the truth.

End Game

For more than thirteen years, Evans and Horton maintained an odd relationship--part friendship, part manipulation--with Evans serving as a snitch while the tenacious investigator searched for the answers that would put him away. After Horton used Evans as a pawn to obtain a confession from a local killer, Evans led Horton in a final game of cat-and-mouse: a battle of wits that would culminate in the most shocking death of all. . .

This was a well written novel,,,and the writer kept you wanting to keep reading. Evans was a very sick man and I'm glad he offed him self. He is saving lives being dead. I just started reading M. William Phelps novels and I am hooked. Keep up the good work.

Thorough and well-written!

As a Psychiatric RN of many years, I found this book to be an impressive chronical about a most complex sociopath. For many who don't have that psych perspective, I can understand how misperceptions could cloud the view of how Evans' case was handled. I can only say how much I can relate to Detective Horton's way of working with this individual, and how much I respect his tenacity, diligence and insight. I'm sure there was even more to Evans than could possibly be known, even to Evans, himself. His dedication to meeting his own needs was at least as strong as Horton's dedication to containing him. The fact that all of this, and much more, came across so clearly to me in this book is a testimony to the incredible talent of this writer. Thanks for another winner!
