The most horrible monsters are the ones who didn't start off as such. "Duncan's Diary" is a fascinating read of the descent into madness of a serial killer.
--The Midwest Book Review
"DUNCAN'S DIARY is a well written, decent first novel that has a bit of a "shock" ending. Serial killer completists might want to check this out." Nick Cato --The Horror Fiction Review
"Just as Alex, the Glenn Close character in Fatal Attraction, managed to put the fear of cheating in men, Duncan's Diary gives me pause about dating. The novel is an impressive work on a number of levels." Carol Hoenig --The Huffington Post --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
Again, I heard "Dude, buddy, are you okay? Wake up." The shaking of my arm was involuntary as if somebody were grabbing me. My eyes felt weary as I pried them open with all my strength. I hazily saw the boy sitting next to me. His girlfriend stared over his shoulder. There was a flight attendant in the aisle, and I heard the guy in the seat opposite of me whisper to the lady next to him, "That guy is screwed up." My mind slowly grasped that I was still sitting in my chair, soaking wet with sweat, and the guy next to me was asking me again if I was okay. "I was dreaming." I heard myself mumble, and I shakily got up and went to the restroom. I splashed water on my faced repeatedly, trying to bring the color back to my skin and slowly come back to reality. It had seemed so real. I couldn't believe it was simply a dream. The feeling of ultimate bliss clung to me like a tattoo. I realized I couldn't continue living without experiencing something like this for real.
My life was soon to begin. I felt alive and nauseous at the same time as I violently threw up in the silver toilet expunging my just eaten meal. The felling of sickness swirling with the vibrant awareness was an odd mixture and difficult for me to balance. I slowly made my way back to my seat, as people stared at me from their wavering positions. Leaning back in my chair, I relaxed again, allowing my breathing to return, and noticing that the couple next to me kept their distance. --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.
This book not only is boring, it's poorly written. The main character is every bad cop show wrapped into one. I wouldn't' t bother with this book if it was free, which it isn't. Read morePublished on January 27, 2013 by Amazon Customer

The sample pages for this book were really good.
The book as a whole was.. well.. too many words and not enough story. Read more
The story was good. Sometimes a little TOO insightful. I don't know if I want to be privy to Duncan's warped thought process anymore. Read morePublished on January 16, 2011 by Jenfaye
