I'm a fan of the genre, so I could be biased here, yet I must admit being surprised by such a masterpiece. I knew Billie Sue Mosiman as en excellent author of supernatural stories, but I didn't know the `true' dark side of her.
As a `Sladist' (a fan of Michael Slade's thrillers, that is), I'm into this kind of literature by the `80s. I'm an avid reader of Val McDermid, Thomas Harris, and lately, Jeff Lindsay. Nonetheless, Wireman reminded me the early Robert Bloch, with its elegant prose and suspense-rising crescendo.
This psychological thriller really hits on your nerves, having your reading experience being like a spook-house: a shock after another.
Her killer makes my Axel J. Hyde (Feeding the Urge) look tame.
Billie Sue Mosiman story is a page-turner of the highest order and was able to let me turn aside a novel from a far-famed author (I'm not going to say his name, for obvious reasons) just to rush to the ending.
Thriller fans, here's the greatest choice for a new adventure into the genre, and we must be thankful to Mrs. Mosiman for transposing this masterpiece on Kindle.
In Nam, Nick and Daley served as Recon Officers. However, when the siblings were separated from their squad, they were trapped deep in Cong territory. In order to survive, Nick had to use the garrote to make a quiet kill of his enemy. When they were rescued, Nick had a breakdown and was hospitalized. He remained confined in the mental ward until Daley returned home. The brothers move to Houston at the same time that someone is decapitating the heads of innocent people, using an MO similar to Nick's Nam experience.
WIREMAN is a taut thriller that keeps the reader on edge from the first page till the novel is finished. This type of book is the true horror novel because the monster is a human, who preys on anyone without the slightest shred of remorse. Billie Sue Mosiman captures the essence of the sociopath so well, readers will buy extra locks to secure their homes in order to gain a slightly disturbed sleep. Fans of realistic horror tales, need to read WIREMAN, one of the sub-genre's best of 1997.
This book will have your emotions going in so many different directions that it just adds to the suspense and over all fear that you are left with till the very end. This is a must read book for any horror reader or anyone who loves a good dark mystery.
Billie Sue Mosiman has such a wonderful way of making all of her characters so real to the readers that you cannot help but to be pulled into every sentence of the book.
Thank you Billie Sue for all you do!!
I'd have liked the bit just before the end (not saying which as I don't want to add spoilers)to be a little clearer, but on the whole a good story and I found the characters of the older cop, and the father easy to believe and well rounded.
I'd have liked a little more background on the brothers and more of a connection to the ribbon. Again, don't want to say too much so as not to spoil it for other readers.
All in all, a great storyline, and the suspense is done well.

EASY TO READ AND INTERESTING STORY. SUE HAS A STYLE ALL HER OWN,
YET AS COMPELLING AS GRAFTON. KEEP THEM COMING.
I barely made it past the first murder, but after that it got pretty hard to put down. Saw the big shocker of an ending coming about a mile away, but still thought it was worth... Read morePublished on June 18, 2012 by KadyH
