Harlson and Lucas are a great set of characters and a perfect match for each other. Harlson doesn't quite believe that Lucas has any sort of gift, but he's willing to work with him. Both characters are similar in that this may very well be their last case. Harlson is terminally ill and Lucas's gift is taking a massive toll on his mind. They both in their own way need to catch the Keepsake Killer.
Terry crafts this thrilling tale by jumping POV from character to character. We are not only given the perspective of Harlson and Lucas, but of Dreg himself too. He is a "Big Bad" if I've ever seen one. There's a inner torment in the character that is so great. Whether it is true or not, this villain believes himself to have the spirit of the wolf in him. There are times when his 'human' side tries to fight the wolf for control or tries to give helpful advice when Dreg is being almost too animistic.
We are also put into the eyes of several other characters along the way, including Lucas's wife, some of the others on the taskforce, a couple of teenagers, and somebody that's going to throw a curveball into the investigation....Somebody that might be the Dreg's biggest fan...
I've read all about how this novel started its life in 2003 and all the problems it had getting to this point. It has been revised and expanded and it has well been worth the wait. You will not be disappointed.
DREG brings some tantalising elements to the serial killer genre. There are elements of MR MERCEDES, and DR SLEEP in there (coincidentally both are two of my favourite Stephen King titles of the last 10 years).
Yes, West delivers a well rounded story - there's a flavour of Harry Turtledove in the down to earth everydayness of the characters. The monsters in DREG range from the simply delusional (the final words to The Optometrist were brilliant) out to the supernatural. I didn't find anything in there I didn't like. Sure the climax of the story was pretty obvious, but just because you can see the sign telling you what's ahead, doesn't mean you can't enjoy the ride.
Mr. West crafts some great cajon lore and comes up with a fantastic antagonist in Dreg, a feral, wolfish man. Just another in a long line of memorable characters, and just as vicious as any West antagonist.
This is a great read, and definitely worth your time.
