Edgar Award-nominee Steve Thayer specializes in the brand of bizarre, sophisticated and paralyzing suspense that thrilled listeners in Thomas Harris' Silence of the Lambs. The tornado is not the only deadly phenomenon raging through the Twin Cities. Preceding each drastic change in the weather, a young woman is brutally murdered-the small bones of her neck crushed under the strong arm of her attacker. The only clue to the monster's identity is a partial fingerprint left at the scene. The prints match those of Channel 7's eccentric weatherman, a man who can sense changes in weather before the National Weather Service can read them.
