He introduced readers to a heroine every bit as dark and edgy as the serial killers she hunts: Special Agent Smoky Barrett. Now, in his latest novel, McFadyen brings Agent Barrett back to track down a killer who breaks all the rules. ´´I want to talk to Smoky Barrett or I´ll kill myself.´´ The girl is sixteen, at the scene of a grisly triple homicide, and has a gun to her head. She claims ´´The Stranger´´ killed her adoptive family, that he´s been following her all her life, killing everyone she ever loved, and that no one believes her. No one has. Until now. Special Agent Smoky Barrett is head of the violent crimes unit in Los Angeles, the part of the FBI reserved for tracking down the worst of the worst. Her team has been handpicked from among the nation´s elite law enforcement specialists and they are as obsessed and relentless as the psychos they hunt; they´ll have to be to deal with this case. For another vicious double homicide reveals a killer embarked on a dark crusade of trauma and death: an ´´artist´´ who´s molding sixteen-year-old Sarah into the perfect victim-and the ultimate weapon. But Smoky Barrett has another, more personal reason for catching The Stranger-an adopted daughter and a new life that are worth protecting at any cost. This time Smoky is going to have to put it all on the line. Because The Stranger is all too real, all too close, and all too relentless. And when he finally shows his face, if she´s not ready to confront her worst fear, Smoky won´ t have time to do anything but die.

Mental illness is a psychological pattern that occurs in an individual and it causes distress and disability. This medical condition disturbs a person´s thinking, daily doings, feeling, and ability to maintain with others. Serious mental illnesses include major depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and borderline personality disorder. The most important thing is that it can be recovered. Medical illnesses can take many forms, just as physical illnesses do. Mental illnesses are still feared and misunderstood by many people, but the fear will disappear as people learn more about them. But in order to be fearless you must get the following information. Mental illness is very common. One out of every four people in Britain is dealing with a mental illness. Mental illnesses are some of the least understood conditions in society. As a result of this condition, many people face prejudice and discrimination in their everyday lives. However, most people can lead productive and fulfilling lives with appropriate treatment and support. For some people, drugs and other medical treatments are helpful, but for other they are not. Medical treatment may only be a part of what helps recovery, and not necessarily the main part. It is not a fault of someone rather this is not a sign of weakness, and it´s not something to be ashamed of. Persons suffering from any of the severe mental disorders present with a variety of symptoms that may include inappropriate anxiety, disturbances of thought and perception, deregulation of mood, and cognitive dysfunction. Most of these symptoms may be relatively specific to a particular diagnosis or cultural influence. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Cathy Beard.
