"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

SPOILER ALERT (Don't read any further if you haven't read this book):
The only thing I really didn't like in this book (since it is a series) is that in the first book Jessica falls in love with the lead and she does in this book too. It also bothered me that again in this book (same as last) that she is the target of the killer. I know it sounds stupid but if every book follows the same pattern they will get kind of dull. I also just am not crazy about Jessica either. It gets tiresome to hear over and over that she is just so darn gorgeous along with being the smartest person that ever lived. Petty, I am sure but it does annoy me.
I really like the protagonist, Jessica Caron. An FBI medical examiner, she's one tough cookie without becoming a cold, efficient machine, which seems to be the cliche now for strong women.
In this murder investigation, Jessica is called in when a series of killings involve Jack-the-Ripper type slashings as well as missing organs. It becomes obvious soon that the killer is cannabalizing his victims, which definitely creates more urgency and adds horror to the situation. Jessica's FBI supervisor forces her to cooperate with her old nemesis, Matthew Matisak, now a resident in a federal prison for his series of murders from the first book, Killer Instinct. Matisak is sure he can lead Jessica to the killer, based on his own on-the-job training, as it were.
The book has plenty of twists and turns. I normally do not enjoy reading books which give the killer's point of view, but Walker manages to put a twist in this as well. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the rest of the series.
