About the Book:
In a suburb of Chicago, Albert Prince parks on a dark, deserted street thinking he's about to get lucky with Betty -- only to find out she wants cash and not romance.
And Albert is a few bucks short.
"Dig up the rest of the money tomorrow," says Betty, "and give me a call. We'll have a great time tomorrow night."
But Albert won't be seeing Betty tomorrow night.
He'll be having a great time without her... in a stranger's house... with a beautiful woman and a knife...
And, after that, he'll be heading out of town on a cross-country killing spree...
