Urge to Kill

He strings women up by their ankles, guts them, and leaves
them to bleed to death...
New York Police Commissioner Harley
Renz knows there’s only one way to stop the gruesome killing
spree of the madman known as “The Slicer.” He calls on
veteran homicide detective Frank Quinn and his hard-hitting team,
detectives Pearl Kasner and Larry Fedderman, to investigate the
twisted, bloody slayings.

At the same time, another murderer terrorizes New Yorkers with
his brutal lust for violent death. In night clubs, parking lots and
convenience stores, men are being shot with .25 caliber guns and
left to die, with their wallets and valuables intact. The assailant
completes his carnage by taking a grim memento from each victim.
Could one killer, perhaps with multiple personalities, be
responsible for all the murders?

As the detectives uncover clues that point to an elaborate,
secret club whose members gamble everything, even their lives, to
kill the most dangerous prey of all --- human-flesh --- Quinn must
decide whether to become a player in the deadliest game...or let
the city remain at the killers’ mercy. New York
bestselling author John Lutz masterfully keeps the
pressure pounding through savage twists and turns that are sure to
captivate thriller fans.
