Read in July, 2009

In general I don't care for crime/thriller/suspense novels, and this book exemplified the reason: too much description of gore and violence. It was rather horrifying. Also, some may find the language off-putting. I thought it was in the normal usage of the characters. However, there was a lot of foul language.

That being said, it was an interesting book: the stories of three brothers interwoven with the story of the Boston Strangler. I liked the ending, which always helps my impression of a book.

But like I said, in the end, I didn't like this book because of the intense descriptions of violence. That has never been my thing, and I don't like to have those images or words in my head. I didn't find it uplifting.
