This ARC was provided complements of NetGalley. Gratitude sent to Kensington Publishing Corporation for allowing this pre-release to be made available.

Con man. Manipulator. Sociopath. All the fine qualities that go onto the resume of a serial killer. The author convinced me how easily we allow themselves to be duped by a seemingly good-natured, smooth-talking stranger. I'm as guilty as the rest. That's just human nature. In the sad case of meeting up with a serial killer - wrong place wrong time

Serial killers galore abound in this private investigator Morris Brick thrilling novel by Jacob Stone which is a pseudo name for author Dan Zeltserman. You can find out more about this author on his web page Lately, I have wondered why I find a serial killer, thriller and horror books or movies so interesting. Could it be that I have a latent monster inside me? Nah, I think it is that I am the opposite, in fact, too much of a humanist.

Could the reason I find the

Second thriller in new series about L.A. serial killers

The first book in the Morris Brick series was DEPRAVED and it was gruesome but this second book outdoes it.

Morris Brick is a retired L.A. homicide detective who has since started up an investigative company that the City of L.A. keeps turning to in its serial killer cases. One reason for this is that when Brick started his own company, he poached a good portion of the best of the City's homicide detectives to work for him.

Morris Brick was homicide detective that became famous after finding the Skull Cracker Killer. Morris has now created his own private investigation company MBI. As hard as Morris tries to stay away from any serial killer/ homicide activity, he inadvertedly gets dragged into things again, when a new even more brutal serial killer surfaces, determined to outdo their predecessor. This novel was great and told from several different perspectives. The only issue I would have with 'Crazed' is the cons ...more

NOTE: The author graciously gave me a copy of this book and asked me to write a review.

A number of mystery writers have come up with stories pitting the world’s most infamous serial killer, Jack the Ripper, against the world’s greatest consulting detective Sherlock Holmes. Author Dave Zeltserman (writing under the pseudonym of Jacob Stone) has taken that premise and put a 21st century spin on it in Crazed, the second in a series of novels featuring retired Los Angeles detective turned private in

Morris Brick is a detective that investigated the Scull Cracker Killer (SCK). Brick discovers that the SCK has someone that wants to make a bigger splash than the SCK and is obsessed with doing so. Brick makes an extraordinary thriller hero. He has an excellent sense of calm even in the midst of the most gruesome of situations.

All of the characters in this book have depth. My favorite character is Philip Stonehedge. At first it appears that Stonehedge would be conceited because he is a highly at

I would like to thank Netgalley and Kensington Books for an advance copy of Crazed, the second novel to feature ex LAPD homicide detective turned PI Morris Brick.

Griffin Bolling is in Seattle when he reads that Sheila Proops will not face charges in the Skull Cracker case (see the first novel, Deranged). He decides to exact justice by going to LA and killing her but things do not exactly go as planned.

I thoroughly enjoyed Crazed which is a fun read and not to be taken too seriously. It has an ea
