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.

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?

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.

Some years ago I saw Dr. Keith Ablow on a show about violent criminals and was impressed with him. I started looking for anything he had written on the psychology of criminals and ended up finding this book. It's fiction but I also love a good mystery so I went ahead and bought it. The story was a thriller and fairly well written. I wasn't particularly taken with any of the characters in the book but it held my interest all the way through. It's not as good as early Patricia Cornwell or anything by Michael Connolly but it's worth a read.

Just one more reason why I LOVE Keith Ablow! The man really knows how to write a psychological thriller that grabs you by the throat and makes you scream for mercy! If you have never read any of his books try him....I doubt you will be disappointed! I have read them ALL and hope he writes another one soon as I need my Ablow "fix"!!!

Not what I was expecting after reading the reviews. None the less I was quit happy with the book itself. While the outcome was somewhat predictible the story telling was excellent. A very nice book (Story)

Dr. Frank Clevenger teams up with the FBI to find the "Highway Killer". This MC has really grown on me. I went from intense dislike to admiring his tenacity. With each book, I like him a little more.

He gains their trust. He listens to their secrets. He kills without mercy. (front cover)

"Dr. Frank Clevenger, forensic psychiatrist and (somewhat reluctant) crime-solver, is quickly becoming one of the genre's most intriguing protagonists...a strange and hypnotic thriller...fascinating."--Booklist

This book keeps up with the tradition of Patricia Cornwell, Iris Johanson and others who write murder mysteries. I'm addicted - I joined so I could get all of the preceding books in the series!

From Publishers Weekly
Ablow's latest thriller (after Compulsion) pits his series protagonist, Boston forensic psychiatrist Frank Clevenger, against Jonah Wrens, a spooky serial killer who also happens to be a psychiatrist. The result is a serviceable spin on the now familiar duel between secret-sharing adversaries. What lifts the novel above the endless line of Thomas Harris remakes is the author's ability to create unique, psychologically complex characters. Clevenger, a refreshingly scarred and flawed hero still recovering from his addictions to sex, drugs and rock `n' roll, is facing the additional daunting task of single-parenting a similarly addicted teenage ward. The homicidal Wren is an empathic genius as adept at understanding and curing disturbed children as he is at meeting, speed-reading and rending his hapless victims.

One of his more "sane" books. He knows of what he writes and he's incredibly gifted. I think the sanity comes in this book because he's now raising a teenager and has to cut back on many of his vices.

Excellent reading! I read it in 2 days ....Now I'm on the hunt for this author's other books.

From the back cover: 12 bodies, 12 states. What no one knows is that that the "Highway Killer" is also a gifted psychiatrist who lures his victims into a false sense of security with his miraculous ability to understand their darkest emotional secrets. He is their confessor ...but he is also their executioner.

Enhanced by the author's voice as the teller of the tale, this one will keep you awake both during the story and for many nights afterward. Thrilling and scarey and and spellbinding.. Give it a listen.
