A very serviceable and well-written Boston thriller, housed in the author's comfort zone (he is a newspaper reporter himself), so it unfolds with authenticity. I love the way McGrory writes (nice humor in the voice), but I am not inclined to read other books in his series. I have limited patience with non-law enforcement protagonists who are nevertheless smack in the middle of every case and are endlessly escaping attempts on their lives.
this book had an interesting subject in the Boston Strangler story, this guy seems to be one of those authors who cranks out tons of books about the same character and runs plot lines throughout multiple books. I found the writing to be kind of melodramatic and kind of crappy. my aunt gave me the book, and it was good(ish) and interesting in that the story is set in Boston and he references streets and neighborhoods etc. I think if I was from california and new nothing about boston I'd kind of h ...more
This is a fictional account of an alternative theory about the Boston Strangler, who was thought to have beeen murdered in prison after confessing to murdering (by strangulation) many women in the Boston area. The book contends that it was someone else, who reappears after 40 years and starts strangling women again. I hope it's fictional anyway.
The killer was not caught but he's in newspaper. So I'm sure he'll not continue to kill again? I guess. I thought he would be killed o caught, but not. Well then, I don't like that much the story but it gave a little suspense in what will happen next.
I loved this book. A quick read with lots of mystery and intrique, and, took place in Boston with a lot of familiar landmarks for me.
I really enjoyed this book. Easy to read, likable main character. would read others by this author.
This was a great read. I could not put it down! Bravo Brian McGrory
