The man in the prison cell calls himself Max. He admits to killing the cop who found him sitting in a car beside the still-warm body of a disembowled young woman, but he claims to be suffering from DID, the multiple personality disorder that is a common alibi for the worst criminals. Assigned to assess the veracity of Max'es defense is strawberry blond psychiatrist Irene Cogan. When Max masterminds his bloody escape from prison and kidnaps Irene, he agrees to undergo a course of therapy, during which Irene is introduced to a succession of his alters - his alternative personalities. To her alarm, it seems that one of them has a distinctly unhealthy penchant for strawberry blonds. And it looks like it will be up to FBI Special Agent E. L. Pender, who has been on Max's trail for over a decade, to find them before Irene discovers exactly what that penchant entails.
