Twisted new take on the serial killer theme. Down right gross descriptions at times, I had to stop eating my lunch at one point. This book takes mind games to a new level. Check it out.....

I'm listening to it right now.  I'm used to serial killer books but this one is more graphic than usual.  I work in a audio book store and I am afraid to recommend this to the regular customer..even though I like the book....it might be too gruesome for many

I agree, I wouldn't recommend it to your average light mystery reader. When I said that I quit eating, I thought that would be a pretty big clue that only the strong should read this one. Even with the grossness, I still feel that this was one of the better books I've read lately. It wasn't jsut the same old same old tired murder mystery.

I read this one also. I agree that it was more graphic than most but probably the best book I have read this year! I borrowed from the library and passed it around to several of my friendsbefore it was due back. They all loved it!
