This novella has two storylines interwoven. One about a serial killer who is sadistically raping and murdering woman in the basement and that of a young man trying to sell one of his screenplays by stalking famous people and the cops who harass him.

The story is tight and quick and is a short rollercoaster ride. I didn’t want to put it down and guessed what the ending (no mystery for me), but did enjoy the little twist. I liked how he described New York City and its people (I knew where he was coming from). The basement signs a little graphic (not gory, but sexual). Too bad the characters weren’t fully developed.
