Critically acclaimed author Jonathan Nasaw plumbs the depths of evil with this scorching, darkly suspenseful thriller. When a man pulled over for a routine traffic stop commits two gruesome acts of violence, the FBI suspects he may be the psychopath who has kidnapped at least a dozen strawberry blond women across the country. Court-appointed psychiatrist Irene Cogan is fascinated by the multiple identities struggling for control of his mind, but it's only when he stages a stunning jailbreak and takes Irene hostage that she begins to understand the minefield of his mental state. Held prisoner beyond the hope of rescue, Irene finds herself at the mercy of a man who can't decide whether she's just another victim--or his one chance for salvation. Full of harrowing psychological surprises and violent, unpredictable twists, The Girls He Adored showcases Jonathan Nasaw as a major voice in contemporary suspense fiction. Narrator Tom Stechschulte infuses all the action with a stunning, unrelenting intensity.

Professional reviews

"Evil abounds in this novel of a sociopathic killer with multiple personalities on a convoluted kidnapping spree of blondes, but only the strawberry kind, in which the victims are savagely abused, both physically and emotionally, and then murdered. FBI Special Agent E.L. Pender methodically tracks the killer, as he has for the past six years, and psychiatrist Irene Cogan uncovers the personalities and motivations of "Max" et al. Lee Sellars slowly and chillingly portrays all the personalities, illuminating the horror of this disturbing tale. Never missing a beat while switching characters and accents, Sellars pushes the story forward to its compelling conclusion. M.B.K. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine"
