This book is a must read! Warning: Do not read right before you go to sleep lol I read this book in two sittings only because I had to stop reading it before I went to sleep Yikes! Never have a read a thriller with a serial killer in which I often sympathized with the animal. Crazy! But don't take my word for it. Go to and see for yourself.
