Overall, a fairly routine serial killer novel, only this time the murderer uses fire to cover his crimes.

Unfortunately for him, one of his victims is the sister of Emmy Dockery. an FBI researcher. Now all she has are the newspaper clippings that wallpaper her bedroom, and her recurring nightmares of an all-consuming fire.

Not even Emmy’s ex-boyfriend, field agent Harrison “Books” Bookman, will believe her that hundreds of kidnappings, rapes, and murders are all connected. That is, until Emmy finds a piece of evidence he can’t afford to ignore.

More murders are reported by the day–and they’re all inexplicable. No motives, no murder weapons, no suspects. Could one person really be responsible for these unthinkable crimes?

I found the interplay of chapters “written” by the killer and the search for him to be off-putting. Not a good Patterson.

    I can’t say that I agree with you at all on the review. My wife and I listen to audio books when we travel, and we both really enjoyed this book immensely! I especially enjoyed the chapters where Graham was talking…they added to the intrigue and suspense….and kept us intrigued throughout the whole novel.

      Baskin Robbins made 31 flavors famous and its the same way with books. Not everyone is pleased by every book. I am glad you found the book enjoyable and perhaps if i had been listening to the audio version I would have liked it better, but in the print version the skipping back and forth just got tedious. So glad you enjoyed the experience.

        I only listen to books now days because of failing eye sight….and I find that I am enjoying books a lot more now days because I don’t have to struggle with the smaller print. The two people that read the novel, January LaVoy, Kevin T. Collins, did an excellent job, and I felt they added quite a bit to the experience. Mr. Collins’ did an especially good job in his portrayal of the killer. I guess it helps when you have really good people reading the books.
