This book is really creepy, It's not quite as horrific as "The Silence of the Lambs" which is the second book in the series but it is close. I had already read "The Silence of the Lambs" which means that I am reading this series completely out of order but fortunately this does not really seem to matter, there is little enough crossover between the two books.
This book is a quick enough read, it has the pageturning effect of a thriller but is written to a much higher level than most thriller books. see my complaints against "A Matter of Honour" to see where I think that most thriller books fail. However some of the images created in parts of the books may be a little to much for some people.
