He was incarcerated in a hospital for the mentally insane but has gotten out a month before the skull-digger started killing his victims. The FBI immediately focus their attention on Daryl but medical examiner Dr. Jessica Coran thinks the real killer is setting up The New Jersey Ghoul to take the fall. She persuades her superiors to look for someone who keeps logging on to Daniel's website and after a ton of digging, they find a likely suspect but Jessica almost gets herself killed when she tries to take him in.
Robert W. Walker can always be counted on to create an exciting crime thriller with a villain that readers love to hate. Told from the point of view of the killer, the audience learns that the character suffers from multiple personality disorder but he is so evil, he illicits no sympathy. The novel is also told from the protagonist's point of view and readers sympathize with her feelings of impotence and frustration as she tries to convince her superiors to go after the right person, not the easiest one to blame.
This book she is like a rookie patrolman. It's like someone else wrote this book and just filled it with shock value murder scenes.
Oh Mr. Walker, this is such a disappointment!
I have never read this author before, but picked up this book at the library based on numerous plaudits on the (paperback) book. Based on this one, I won't bother to read any others. I don't write many reviews, but I was moved to write this one just to warn others away.
First, I will say that the basic premise of the book was intriguing and sufficiently interesting that I read it completely through. Maybe my frustration comes from the fact that the story development was handled SO poorly. (It coulda been a contender)
The book is riddled with
-- errors, like "Angora" [not Angola ??] Prison, "Pittsburgh Pennsylvania University" [not the University of Pittsburgh] Steps leading to a house are made out of cypress-- when a few pages earlier, they were made of cedar. Supposedly the bobbing movement of the room shown on a video help the good guys to figure out that it is on a boat. But the camera and room are fixed in position on the same boat, so there would be NO apparent movement in the video.
-- hackneyed or unrealistic plot devices Split personality is a very rare condition used far too often in fiction, so perhaps I shouldn't complain. But, eating fresh brains is so compelling that even police pick up the habit quickly ?? We're told that a hurricane is hitting to the south, close enough that local helicopters have been sent down for rescue work. But around here, the air and water are so calm that the fog is inpenetrable ?
I don't understand why there are so many unconnected vignettes of unknown people reading mostly technical material about brain anatomy on web sites. It comes across to me as if some research assistant had taken the trouble to copy that technical information down, and the author had to fit it in SOMEWHERE.
Enough. I fear that I have already devoted more brain energy to this book than it deserves.
