OMG.....what a page-turner!
on 1 September 2011
I've read both of Chris Carter's previous books (entitled 'The Executioner' and 'The Crucifix Killer') and although I was very much looking forward to reading The Night Stalker, I wondered how it could possibly top the other 2 books. As a Psychologist myself (with an avid interest in the minds and workings of serial killers) I have to say it takes alot to thrill, shock and intrigue me simultaneously. Well, Chris thank you so much....I had the best 3 days reading your book - only taking breaks for food and sleep;-) I can't wait for the next novel as it is true what another reviewer on Amazon has pointed out - we are told very little about Hunter this time and I'm intrigued to find out more about his former love interest. Chris your written work (both in terms of writing style and story telling ability) is truly exceptional!
Only one minor criticism I would like to point out: I felt Garcia was constantly chasing Hunter's coat-tails, that is to say, he always had his 'lightbulb' moment seconds or minutes after Hunter had worked something out...which gave his slower realisations an almost comedic feel....kind of like in Laurel and Hardy where the former is constantly left scratching his head.....this makes Garcia look a little dumb.....he should occasionally have been made to be the one who brainstormed his way through a problem without the aid of Hunter.
To conclude, I CANNOT wait for the next stage of the story with this dynamic duo:-)
