The premise is great, the execution appalling.
Barton starts with a great storyline, a madman abducting women, then "hunting" them on his vast estate for several weeks before finally killing them; all the makings of a terrifying book. However, Barton fails to make use of this idea and the book is slow-moving, the conversations stunted, characters boring, and it is entirely predictable. I found myself just skimming the pages to get to the end (I can never just "not" finish a book, even if it's bad).
To add insult to injury, this particular printing was full of typos, at least 6 in the first 50 pages and several dozen in the book. (Not just spelling mistakes, but also mistakes such as "Five out of four women were abducted". Five out of four?) Obviously there is little regard for the reader from this publisher.
This book was enough to put me completely off Barton.
