Blurb:

The mesmerist. A man posessed of the power of hypnotic evil. The power to enslave woman and to terrorise an entire community.

He came to Center City, Nebraska, out of nowhere. He began as a dental surgeon of uncanny skill. He caused the town’s most prominent citizen to die by his own hand, and reduced a lovely wife to the most appalling depths of depravity.

To satisfy his lust for wealth and power he could bend the free will of anyone he chose to serve his own satanic purpose.

Only one man is determined to destroy him, whatever the cost. A man prepared to do battle with evil to save the woman he loves…

Thanks to Calenture for the cover scan and blurb.
