I liked the plot and character development for three quarters of the book, but then it seemed the author was trying to wrap it up and it became jumbled. So so book, I wouldn't recommend it.

By far the best in the series so far. Such well fleshed characters, a very orginal plot line, and written in such a way that at times I found myself even feeling sympathy for the bad guy. And trust me, this is one creepy bad guy! This is one of those books that kept begging me to pick it up again, and I love it when a book calls to me that way. The pages just flew by. This will probably be one of my top picks for the year. Very well done!

There are a lot of thriller books out there but none with quite the intensity of Montanari's homicide detective duo, Byrne and Balzanno from Philly. Then they encounter a psychotic serial killer (again) who is a magician and focused on illusion and misdirection to continue murdering teen aged runaways whom he lures into his web as a spider would a fly. Badlands provides an engrossing and absorbing glimpse into the details of detectives' daily dedication to duty!! and personal details about the driven characters personalities to make one wish the next novel were right here right now! Also, being from PA, a number of years ago, I like reading about Philly, even the dirty details of disturbed minds. A very taught and entertaining read.
