Daniel Pell is a contemporary Charles Manson. A petty criminal with a history of antisocial behavior and obsession with controlling other people, he had a group of women living with him in a quasi cult in central California. Eight years ago, he and another man viciously slaughtered a family for no apparent reason. Now, present day, Pell has escaped and Kathryn Dance, the famed interrogator and kinesic analyst and her team, must find out where he is. She brings together the three women, now leading normal lives, to help her find out where Pell is and what he's up to. The 'Sleeping Doll' refers to the one surviving daughter of the original murder eight years ago - a nickname because she was asleep with her toys and not seen by the killer. Dance has to find her and see what she remembers about the night of the killings. Nothing is quite what it seems to be.

A fast-paced book, with non-stop action. Dance is an intelligent, no-nonsense detective who is out to get Pell. There are many twists and unexpected surprises in the story. Well worth the read.

Excellent book! Kathryn Dance is the sharpest agent I've seen in awhile. Lots of twists and turns, especially at the end. Highly recommended.
