4.0 out of 5 stars Serial killer thriller, 21 July 2004
This review is from: Want to Play? (Paperback)
Compilers of a new computer game find that a serial killer is bumping poeple off in ways predicted by the game. It's set in Minneapolis and rural Wisconsin and has good local atmosphere (oddly enough it doesn't seem to have been published in America and is not on the US Amazon.com).
It's well written with good colloquial dialog and a solidly crafted plot and it keeps you turning the pages.
My main reservation was simply the fact that it is a serialkiller thriller. The genre is crowded and I did not find enough originality to prefer it to the latest Hoag or Harris or Pattison.
Actually I liked the first few pages best,set in TF Powers country describing the life of a Catholic priest in chilly Lutheran Wisconsin. It's apparently a first novel. I suspect the writer or writers are capable of more highclass literary work but have decided that serial killers sell better.
