great story which somehow manages to show the kinder, gentler side of a violent psychopath serial killer while showing the dark underbelly of the "good guy" as well. Well written, keeps your attention, and brutal at times...what more could you ask (or expect) from a book with this title?
Great insight into the emotional and physical roller coaster of a serial killer. Strong ensemble of characters. First book I've picked up by this author, but will be reading more.
This is the first book I have read by Keith Ablow. It's excellent!! I plan to order any of his books that are available. It's the kind of book that's hard to put down. A forensic psychiatrist is called in to work on a serial murder case, and he and the killer exchange open letters in the New York Times. The killer is a successful psychiatrist, also. The reader gets to observe the two matching wits. An interesting approach by the author!
Although it ended the only way it possibly could end, this thriller remained exciting to the end. A fine entry in the Frank Clevenger series, although the female "interest" of Clevenger remains sketchily drawn in this one.
a serial killer who is also a brilliant psychiatrist with an uncanny ability to burrow into the human mind
