I know the words "dark," and "page-turner," and "suspenseful" are **always** used when describing books of the mystery/thriller genre, but gosh, here is one heck of a dark, suspenseful page-turner. Ablow has re-invented the genre with his anti-hero Frank Clevenger -- a forensic psychiatrist with more than his share of demons (within and without). The book has several scenes of graphic sexuality which may offend some readers but are essential to character development and plot. Here is a fresh, shocking and exciting read -- better than Kellerman, and that's saying something!

A good book. Dark and sometimes disturbing. I wish the author would have focused more on the crime than the main character's personal life. Some is required but I feel he focused on it too much and not enough on the crime.

Once you got to the second half of the book, it picked up. I didn't care too much for the detail of the character's own life and I figured out the ending before I got 3/4's of the way through.(A bit predictable and redundant)
It was OK, but definately not a favorite.

Kind of hard to like these characters until you realize the torment in their lives is what makes most of this story, there is graphic raw sex descriptions if you like that kind of reading and the story takes over half the book to finally get into what is going on but since it is the first book about Frank Clevenger I guess it was necessary to get his background story out there, just hope it isn't in all the books word for word. I will read more by Ablow

These Clevenger books are AWESOME! that's the only way to describe it. The first few pages had me thinking "oh, here we go, a good but predictable suspense book like the Alex Delaware and Kay Scarpetta novels" (which I also love) and then WHAM, OMG! I loved it.
