Mitchell Norton, the serial killer, is also someone we can relate to. When one discovers the reason for his ‘madness’, one can be forgiven for harbouring a moment of compassion, but the moment is short-lived as Mitchell goes about his devilish business, tormenting and destroying the lives of all he touches.
I found this novel a compelling read, often turning pages--rather than engaging in my own writing--to discover what next atrocity Mitchell Norton might undertake, and hoping he was stopped before he could eliminate more victims.
Can't wait for the next instalment.

Forced myself to finish the book so I knew the ending. .. except it doesn't actually have closure. I'm assuming ?? that's in the next book advertised after the final chapter. .. which I will not be buying.
The story moved at a brisk pace as the reader is propelled back and forth between the two viewpoints and subplots that go back and forth through time until you are creasing pages to ease your own angst and see where each destiny merges and the fates of each.
If you like a thriller with substance and characters that are so real you think you may have read about them in the paper I highly recommend this excellent novel
I needed to know what was going to happen next despite some of the gruesome and more uncomfortable parts of the story (inside the mind of a serial killer). I found the story engrossing and the style of writing quite crisp, clean, and forthright.
This is definitely not a book for the squeamish and not for children, as this author states right upfront. Be forewarned. But to be fair, it is those scenes that truly let you into the mindset of Mitchell Norton and his rational and without them, this book would not have achieved what it set out to do. As far as Tony is concerned, the experiences he is faced to deal with with make your heart break for him and near the end of the story, you can't help but cheer the guy on despite knowing that for all intents and purposes what he is doing is wrong. You won't care. It feels right and that's all that matters.
The ending is perfect. It works and sets up the sequel wonderfully. I can't wait to see where this story goes. And Mr. Diamond, if you're reading this, cut Tony some slack, will ya? The guy deserves to find his happy ending. But something tells me, he's in for another roller coaster ride from hell.
My only small nit-picky complaint was the shifting from present time (1995) to the past (1978) and varying the different POV's between Mitchell and Tony. At first, it took me off guard and I struggled with it (could just be me though, so don't let that sway your decision--this is great thriller, regardless). So it took me a few chapters to train my eye to read the chapter header. After a few chapters, it was no longer an issue and actually worked very well in telling this particular story.
Overall, loved it. Two thumbs up.
