Product Details


It is truly difficult to find a serial - killer novel with a different twist, but Weaver has managed to write it. Newspaper columnist Paul Garret is shot twice in the head while trying to save his wife from rape and murder. When he survives, the killer, William Meade, feels an affinity with Garret, sharing the news about his latest killings. Meanwhile Lieutenant Canderro of the Poughkeepsie police allows Garret access to official information in the hope that one of them will see something that will lead to Meade's arrest. The story is broken into three narratives--by the killer, the victim as detective, and the policeman who becomes a one-man vigilante committee. The writing is not overly graphic in the torture, rape, and murder scenes, and Weaver uses a few overworked themes. Overall, however, there is enough suspense and good characterization to make this a first-rate first novel. Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club alternates.-- Jo Ann Vicarel, Cleveland Heights-University Heights P.L., Ohio
