David Ellis has proven that he truly has what it takes to be on the top. "Eye of the Beholder" is even better than his first novel.

It's been a long time since a book had me up long past my usual bedtime playing the "one more chapter" game, but this novel had me playing it every night until I finished reading. Many times I thought I'd figured it all out, only to discover yet another level of motivation or deception. If you enjoy tightly paced mysteries with well-drawn characters and a very complex puzzle, don't miss "Eye of the Beholder;" I'll be looking for more by this author!

In 1985, Burgos killed six women, each method corresponding to a line in a song lyric, and was executed for it. Fifteen years later, it looks like the murders have taken up where they left off. The author built up a lot of intrigue but didn't know how to resolve it neatly, so multiple psychotic characters are invoked. The ending is both contrived and maudlin.
