With deadlines looming, Riley O'Shea thinks she has realized her worst fear when she discovers that she can no longer write. Unbeknownst to O'Shea, she has a fervent admirer named Jericho Sampson. Sampson is an emerging serial killer who believes he can absorb his victim's inner energy by maximizing their fear and pain before he kills them. Believing O'Shea will accurately chronicle his ascension; Sampson kidnaps O'Shea and embarks on his violent killing spree. Stuck in a dungeon-like basement, O'Shea realizes she has to write if she wants to live. While the corpses start piling up, O'Shea plays a dangerous game with Sampson convincing him that she is writing while a bored detective transplanted from Chicago to small town Illinois and a lifelong friend of O'Shea's get tangled in the intricate web woven by Sampson. Can O'Shea overcome her writer's block before Sampson finds out or will she become another victim of one of the scariest and most frightening characters ever imagined?

My 2 cents:

I have not read anything quiet like this before and was amazed at the details and how the story came along. Riley has writers block, she told her best friend and father figure Jim, she would like to be locked away in a room by herself. She thought it would be a great way to get through her writers block. You really should be careful for what you wish for it might really come true. She was kidnapped by a fan of her books, Jericho. He wants Riley to write his story to show the world how great he thinks he is. The things Jericho does amazes me. You get to see what some serial killers go through and their thought process. I thought the author did a great job with the facts and story telling. The book flows with no boring/slow spots, it is a page turner. I wanted to see if Riley was going to start writing again and if she would escape. All the characters in the book are believable. You feel for some of the characters and you hate one of them. There are some crazy things in the book that makes it all come together for a great read. Thank you Michael for asking me to review your book.
