it was ok
Read from October 04 to 06, 2012

This book had a good solid serial-killer-thriller premise and got off to an interesting start...and then it unraveled in a few different ways by the end, with a sudden and too-unexpected twist, too much hand-wringing over the same subjects all the way through, and, most irritatingly, a tendency for the author to make his characters suddenly forget how to speak in contractions ("I will not let that happen...", "I do not know how...")over and over. Clunky dialogue makes me crazy: it's not like an author has never heard actual conversation. All in all, Koryta should stick with supernatural thrillers: he seems to have a better touch with them. I should have just reread The Ridge.
