HASH(0x9a4279a8) out of 5 stars The Review 30 Mar. 2000
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
A young man, dictated to by his overbearing mother and his watchful boss, begins murdering innocent victims. He allows them to live long enough to pen a letter to Violet Day, a famous astrologist. His ultimate target is Violet Day herself. He masterminds a plan to ruin her annual Halloween event. Ken Blackburn, an ex-cop, and Lorraine, Violet's daughter, become involved in trying to protect themselves against the killer. This was an easy read but some of the flashbacks and settings changed unexpectedly.

HASH(0x9a4891a4) out of 5 stars Really good murder mystery/thriller that seriously creeped me out 4 April 2013
By GamerGirl - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
So this story is about a disturbed young man named Jaydee who grew up in an abusive home and starts trying to control his surroundings. He does this by shooting women in the head after forcing them to write a letter to famous astrologer Violet Day. Violet Day's daughter, Lorraine, is about to take over the fortune-telling empire when she begins receiving these horrifying letters. Fortunately for her, Ken Blackburn, old friend and ex-cop, is a serial killer specialist. I don't want to give much away about Ken because his life is a big part of the book.

Oddly enough, what I enjoyed most about Reaper was the flashbacks. Sounds crazy, I know, but Cline did an excellent job melding past with present in order to add an impressive depth to his characters. Not only did I have a complete vivisection of characters' motives but I started to see where their thoughts were going. It's not enough that it spoils the plot triggers, but enough that I think, WHOA NOW HE'S GOING TO DO THIS AND THIS AND THIS! OH NO!!

The few weak points in the book are as follows: there's a slew of imagery, which I like, but it doesn't vary from character to character. Cline could alter the quality of "darkness" in Jaydee's view to add scary elements and introduce some "magical" points to Lorraine's view to differentiate the way they see the physical world. In addition, I have a hard time believing the things Becky, Lorraine's 15-year-old daughter, offers as words of wisdom to her mother while they deal with the psycho Jaydee's threats. I mean, come on, she's only 15!

Other than those points I whole-heartedly endorse this book, recommending it to lovers of murder mystery. Just know that there's suggestion of adult content, though it's all off-stage. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
