This was a very shockingly violent book, but it's also quite well written and you can tell it's not just simply an exploitation novel. Violence always has consequences, and this author never shies away from that. In the description, the author said he had to put the book away for awhile while he was writing it because it gave him nightmares. If it affects the writer so strongly, imagine what it will do to you. I recommend this book to all fans of the horror genre who like large doses of blood and guts.

This was a respite from some of the other books I've read lately. I wanted something pretty mindless, yet slasher-style, and I found it with this. I am looking forward to reading the others in this series, although that will come after I read a few other books now. I will also look for other books by this author.

I am a big fan of horror, weather it is in movies or in books. This book is well written and give vivid description of the blood, guts and gore. Lustmord would be classified as a page turner and a very good one at that. The characters are believable and well developed from different backgrounds. The author gives a warning to his readers that this book is not for everyone and one should that that warning very seriously.

If you're a fan of horror novels, then I can't imagine a reason why you wouldn't completely devour Kirk Alex's Lustmord: Anatomy of a Serial Butcher. It has everything you could want: disturbing character backstory, gruesome imagery, shocking acts of violence and depravity, and it's all pulled together with completely compelling writing. I absolutely could not put this work down and scrambled at the end to find the second installment. I'm definitely going to recommend this book to anyone I know who likes a good slasher story. As well, I think fans of Dexter (either the tv series or the books by Jeff Lindsay) will appreciate this work.

I love horror movies and a good serial killer, so when I came across this book for less than a dollar I had to read it. I was very impressed; this could definitely be a big hit horror movie. The authors writing style keeps the book flowing nicely, and he absolutely didn't skimp on all the scary gory details!

Cecil Omar Biggs' psychological journey is beyond disturbed, after an intense, sad, filled with horror childhood, Cecil starts his own twisted life style by using a front as a "United Christian Church of Re-newed Hope" as a cover to house other mentally disturbed people, as well as a basement of horrors!

Any and all horror genre fans will be hooked with this twisted story!

The book is listed as a horror story probably because Amazon does not have a section for white trash torture porn. The beginning had great promise. The author did an excellent job of painting a grim childhood trauma. Once the timeline forwarded to adulthood things went steadily down hill. The prose thereafter quickly turned to a high point of hemorrhoids then digressed into instances of cruelty, banal depravity or juvenile lust one after another. The various characters go largely underdeveloped at best. Even the 'strong female' stripper character gets little personality development but receives page after page after page ad nauseam describing her striptease act at the club. Just to round out the vulgar farce this volume ends with infanticide, execution and rape. If you want to read about a dimwitted narcissistic sadist with an inflated libido and his slack-jawed lackey then maybe this book is for you. Anyone expecting an actual horror novel or simply wanting more from reading time should avoid this unremitting tripe at all costs.

It is my belief that writing within the horror genre is one of the most difficult forms of script to get correct.
Why?

In fantasy and similar genres, the writer can choose to ignore all rules resembling our own reality and rely strictly on the expansiveness of their imagination. Whereas a writer presenting a horror story around a believable serial murdering sociopath/psychopath character, the characteristics of and the motivations of the characters not to mention the circumstances surrounding the characters MUST be believable and unbelievable simultaneously.

The audience (reader) must be able to draw correlations to the real world, real people, real suspicions, real fears, possibly real experiences then using morbid imagination, transcend above all of that to such a horrific level that it invokes feelings within the reader...fear, revulsion, shock, dismay, physical illness, etc. The audience/ reader must be able to insert themselves either in the victims psyche or in the killers' to experience what we know if the most frightening reality -- that this level of monstrous depravity truly does exist in our world.
I started reading Lustmord volume 3 of this series *(see review of volume 3). Once I completed that, I realized I really needed to get the back-story of all the characters to commit myself to the characters and their world so I reversed and read volume 1 then volume 2. I am glad I did read a bit out of order and here is why.

I thought volume 1 was slower through 55% of the book before things really started to pick up intensity. There was a large section where the author spent, I felt, far too much time detailing the girls' dancing in the strip club and the male audience reaction to it.
