New York: Grove Press, (1993) dj. Hardcover first edition - A gripping thriller by this award winning French novelist. "Marc Lacroix, a psychotherapist, develops a computer that allows two people to exchange personalities. He chooses as his first subject Michel Zyto, his prize patient - a psychopathic sex offender and suspected serial killer. This is the point of departure in a chillingly realistic novel, the ultimate story of switched and stolen identity. What begins as a cutting-edge experiment in mind-body exploration spirals into a nightmare of page-turning suspense when, in his therapist's body, the patient escapes. Savagely sophisticated and intellectually cunning, Zyto uses his newfound incarnation to full advantage with Lacroix's colleagues, wife, and young son. Hidden in the perfect disguise, he plots one perfect crime after another." Translated from the French by Lanie Goodman. 359 pp. ISBN: 0-802114377.
