it was ok

Two stars seems harsh, considering the suspense in this novel, about a serial killer who is looking for the perfect daughter and kidnaps girls for this purpose, then, when he discovers they're not perfect, kills them by breaking all of their bones, is evident. Very suspenseful in spots, but the writing was a bit dull, and a lot of it was silly, really silly, and unbelievable. The thoughts running through the head of the protagonist, especially concerning his daughter, were just plain stupid. And two things I don't like in novels, ok, three things that really make me crazy: total disregard for animals, as though they are not sentient beings with feelings; an antagonist drawn as being pure evil but the WHY behind his cruelty is never sufficiently explained; and side stories that are never wrapped up to the my satisfaction.
