4.0 out of 5 stars Great - until the end, 21 Oct. 2013
This review is from: Fetish (Kindle Edition)
A gripping, graphic, horror mystery that almost throws away the hard work of 99% of the text. A serial killer is on the lose and cops have very little to go on. Tensions are rising as the poor, crime-afflicted community targeted by the killer turn on each other and feel disenchanted by the efforts of the law, who they feel don't care about their racial minority.

The book, written in the 3rd person, looks at the case from multiple characters viewpoints. As always J.F Gonzalez doesn't let up on the bleakness, the gore or the nastiness. Unfortunately this was almost - almost - undone by an end that is so full of plot holes, I just couldn't suspend belief for it. Even though it seems it was setup a chapter or two before, the explanation offered still leaves large gaps in logic when applied. I expected a twist, I knew that somehow it would come back to the prologue and after reading the brilliant "Survivor", I was on the look out for red herrings, of which there were quite a few. I suspected what the twist might be, but hoped that it wouldn't go down that route. It's still well worth a read. J.F Gonzalez is a brutal, diverse modern horror writer in the vein of Richard Laymon and all the nasty greats. Just do yourself a favour and skip the Epilogue!
