Format: Kindle Edition
Would it be hyperbole to claim that I feel a little raped by this novel?

But in all seriousness, Heart Killer is probably the most gripping work of fiction published in the past year. Beyond being an evolution in Andy Nowicki's storytelling, Heart Killer is absolutely required reading for anti-feminists for its psychological insight into male and female sexuality. Just be forewarned: even if you've read Nowicki's previous books, Heart Killer takes things to another level of sickness.

The story concerns FBI profiler Frances Lazarus, who is dispatched to Atlanta in 1987 to investigate a potential serial killer at the prestigious Cordelia Academy high school, after a wave of young girls are found dead from being shot through the heart. While there, she meets Johann Salvadorus, a bizarre, dorky student who she suspects to be the "Cordelia Heart-Killer." Reading through his personal journal, she discovers that he is a middle-aged man in a teenager's body, inexplicably sent back in time after spending his life becoming a ruthless player and Casanova.

The novel oscillates between four different perspectives: Lazarus' own, Johann's (via his journal), and two unnamed third-person narrators who describe the aftermath of their encounter. This is easily one of Heart Killer's most effective conceits, as it forces you to stare down the depravity--and the redemption--of our lead characters.
