Good character development, good action - I like this author!
I enjoyed this one as much as Every Dead Thing and The Book of Lost Things. There were some very powerfully graphic scenes that offered the most suspenseful of the Charlie Parker series.
Since spiders do completely frighten me, this book certainly had its moments of giving me that creeping feeling and turning up the lights to make sure that spiders hadn't crawled out of fiction and into reality in my room! This one was certainly the most horrifying, at least in conjunction with my particular phobias.
I am quite anxious to read his other books!
This is not your run of the mill thriller. The Killing Kind is intelligently written, in a style that is as intense as it is lyrical. This is book 3 of the Charlie Parker series and though it stands alone, it also resolves some of the questions left unanswered in the first two books. A great read!
