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:-)
Once again Robert Hunter, Criminal psychologist extraordinaire and his assistant, - who by he way has gained a some intelligence and serious cop strategies, unlike in the first book - go on the trail of yet another serial killer whose gruesome murders get evermore gruesome.
Once again my main niggle is that we tend to get 'lectured' as Hunter explains everything he knows about criminal profiling and psychology. And this time round Hunter has a new boss - a Captain Blake- a woman who has apparently taken over from Garcia the honours of being the dumbest one on the entire team. How ever did she get to be captain?
My other niggle was the chapter endings full of cliched remarks such as:- 'What he saw sent shivers down his spine'. "You're kidding me."…."No way"…."No sh*t"….and so on for most of the chapters. It was obviously meant to keep the reader turning the pages, but it became tedious and gave the whole thing a slightly amateurish feel. This is okay for some chapter endings but not almost all of them.
Nevertheless I did enjoy it, but overall I thought his first book was a better read. And so it gets four stars from me, but only just.
This is Carter at his best - a turn-page books and two nights spent reading. Genius stems from a very scabrous set of homicides. Probably, the first book I have read where I was unable to guess the murderer. This time, evil is enthralling and almost sexy - aside the dynamic of murder, the book deals with charme. Everyone is beautiful, Aesthetics is a guideline, even the assassin, along the book has sensual features.
In many ways, Chris Carter is writing a biography. There is a shift between the acquired abilities of Rober Hunter (Chris Carter's background), and the ever-working self-learner Robert Vasquez.
Useless to describe the plot and dynamics: At the intrapsychic level the may be disturbing at times, but we never can anticipate how cruel and disturbed human behavior may grow.
I highly recommend this book to anyone is fascinated by criminal behavior's fictions, excellent style of writing, and a very peculiar outstanding quality to create a plot that is not available in all Forensic Psychiatry literature. MY BEST reading in 2011. Thanks, Chris!
ridiculous plot, obvious characters, OTT 'killings', too many coincidences to carry the reader on. I cannot understand the 200+ raving about it reviews. I can only think the readers haven't read any decent crime books recently.
Add into this mix two classic unbelievable mistakes which the author made and the editor missed -
he pushed their slimy bodies through the hook
a piece of meat he pulled from his pocket out.
Need I say more?
Mr Carter needs a decent editor - may I suggest he changes publishers and finds one?
I unsubscribed from bookbub because of the poor quality of the books on offer. I went for Kindle Daily Deals. If this is the quality, then I am unsubscribing from this, too.
