The Killer Inside Me by Jim Thompson
Kam Oi’s first review of the year
really liked it
Holy moly, this was dark as hell. Even as part of me recoiled in horror, another part of me was rooting for the psychopathic protagonist the whole way. I don't agree with the people who say this story made them question Jim Thompson's sanity. Rather, this story filled me with admiration for Thompson's fearlessness to enter a monster's mind and write from his perspective.

Kam Oi’s last review of the year
really liked it
More like 4.5 stars. The best part of this for me was watching Harry work; the way he gets on the case with just the right combination of logic, intuition, persistence, and purpose. I loved how Harry redefined "crossing over": for him it's not about exonerating the guy who might not have done it, it's about hunting down the guy who's still out there & did do it. I appreciated that this was Bosch's book more than Haller's, though I also though ...more
