is the whole thing exposition? The first six chapters are. It's like reading a very dull government report.
This was one of those very rare instances where I could not bring myself to finish a book. I have read and enjoyed Ing's work in the past, so I was hopeful with this book, but there was a scene that I found so repugnant and disturbing that I couldn't complete it.
I had a love/hate relationship with this book. For a thriller, you can't get much better in character development then Ing does in this novel. Descriptions of serial killers act though were horrible and almost unreadable.
I had forgotten how good Dean Ing is. Psycho-thriller at its best. Well worth the time to track down.
Great descriptions of tradecraft colliding with the world of serial killers, hated the ending.
