Doctors were baffled when warmhearted Peggy Carr was rushed to the hospital with fiery burning sensations. Days later her two sons fell ill with the same horrifying symptoms. As Peggy lay writhing in an agony of slow death, the doctors' bewilderment turned to horror when they discovered the three had ingested massive doses of the fatal chemical thallium. But how were they poisoned? And by whom?
Soon, the FBI's psychological profile pointed to the family's next door neighbor, George Trepal, an eccentric computer whiz and member of the high I.Q. club, Mensa. But why would a man who was married to a doctor and seemed to be living a normal life commit such a cold-blooded act? And how did he do it without leaving any evidence? It was a crime so brilliantly concealed, police feared he might get away with it. Now it was up to policewoman Susan Goreck to go undercover--an enter the twisted mind of a sadistic psychopath.

Many of us have had neighbors whose loud music, objectionable habits, or destruction of property get on our nerves. This is the story of a man who got so annoyed, he poisoned his neighbors with an extremely painful nerve toxin. The personalities are what make the book: the cartoon-character nerd who was a disgruntled househusband to a female orthopedist, the quietly charming policewoman who went undercover to get the goods on him, the loving Southern family who suffered so much. And there's a revelation at the end of the story that will appall you. As the New York Times wrote, "Florida, the cradle of creepiness in detective fiction, offers up some weird criminals in real life, too.... The authors are good at portraying the oddly disconnected society of small-town Florida, as well as the man who almost committed the perfect crime there."From Publishers Weekly:
Journalist Good and undercover cop Goreck detail Goreck's investigation of a cold-blooded killer with a genius IQ.
