WOW! This one will scare the pants off you! Very scary and that's what I enjoy when I read a thriller!
First novelist Kennett draws on the Silence of the Lambs model, but unlike so many other imitators of that groundbreaking thriller, she actually turns the weary formula into something worthwhile. Newly divorced psychologist-cum-computer expert P. J. Gray moves to St. Louis to take a job as a psychological profiler for the police department. Her first case involves a serial killer who mutilates his live victims, then beheads them. P. J. is teamed with Leo Schultz, an old-school detective who writes off P. J.'s plan to use a virtual-reality program to reconstruct the killer's movements. As the killer continues on his horrific spree, however, Schultz and P. J. eventually start to like and trust each other, which is particularly important when P. J. becomes the killer's intended victim. Although there's plenty that's predictable about this story, Kennett's devious creativity and bloodcurdling, realistic descriptive passages result in a terrifying and explosive thriller
This was creepy and great to read.
