This was my first John Lutz book and I will certainly be reading more. While it kept me entertained, I was also entralled with trying to figure out who the serial murderer was and just when I thought I'd figured it out, I was blindsided. This is a great book. The characters are well thought out and the plot very suspenseful. I recommend it for anyone looking for a good mystery/thriller.
I am a John Lutz fan but this one just did not interest me. It starts out pretty good and then it just seems to drag page after page until about half way I was just bored to tears, so much of it is just not necessary and the story drags through all the descriptions page after page, 480 is about 200 pages too long so it makes the story just stretched out too much. But I will keep reading his books, he's a good author
