I think the plot is good - the hunt for a disturbed serial killer - but I don't feel the execution matches. Firstly, there are editing issues - spellcheck does not replace a human and there are wrong words in the text (my particular pet hate - phase instead of faze being one), secondly, the clutter of unimportant detail detracts from the plot and dilutes the tension you should feel and thirdly the killer is not well portrayed - he is straight from serial killer 101 and barely credible - being too young to be so organised but almost all the characters are too young for their accomplishments as another reviewer has said.
There is nothing in this novel that a professional edit could not fix and turn into a very good read but as it is it's just ok.
A) I'm breaking that rule here by saying this book is truly awful. Appalling dialogue and dreadful characterisation just left me in despair at the time I'd wasted ploughing on before giving up.
B) I wish the author would abide by my original adage. He really doesn't have anything good to say/write.
My only reason for bothering to write any review at all is my annoyance at the friends' 5star ratings below- they only serve to con potential readers. Poor show folks!

Really enjoyed the book and would recommend it. A fresh story and believable characters. Definitely worth a read and will look for more books by this author.Published 21 months ago by KO
The basic premise of this story is a good one and promises much. The way in which the story is played out, little by little, teases the reader and keeps the attention. Read morePublished on 25 April 2014 by Aurora
Good read, well written and with a plot that kept my interest, with the full story developing in snippets that kept me wanting to read more.Published on 14 Mar. 2014 by Kathryn Mitchell
Enjoyed the book the frequency of murder,read it while on holiday and found I couldn't put it down would definitely recommend itPublished on 21 Oct. 2013 by Amazon Customer
Nasty tale full of contempt for women. Both 'hero' and villain are equally at fault. Pedestrian writing focuses on what people wear rather than on motivation or character. Read morePublished on 30 Sept. 2013 by Amazon Customer
