From the Inside Flap
The killer smiled when Brian McKittrick accepted the friendship request on Facebook. This one was the fastest response yet. It had taken Brian less than a minute after the request was sent for him to accept it. A request from a complete stranger. Another narcissistic person signing their own death sentence. It was funny--disgusting, really--how desperate people were for attention these days. How much they craved showing others how popular they were. The more friends they had on Facebook, the more popular they must be in the eyes of others.
The killer tsk-tsked with disapproval. Vain, vain creatures...
If only they knew how big a price they were about to pay for accepting every friend request they got. One could only hope they thought it had been worth it in the end.
Brian would be the next to pay and the killer would make sure the man suffered, more than the others even. With each victim, it was getting easier to inflict extreme pain. The killer had plenty of practice, so, by now, it took little effort. Each move had become second nature.
Brian would by no means be the last victim. No, siree! The killer had a record to break. If the plan was to become the world's most prolific serial killer, there was plenty of work to do. So far, the killer had not even managed to complete seventy kills. No way near what the big-timers in that field had achieved.
The killer was confident that the number would be surpassed fairly soon, though. Another year and the killer would have them all beaten for sure. After all, there was an advantage. The killer was special, smarter than regular people. Of a different kind.
And this was why the killer was unstoppable.
