Senseless killing spree.

Oct 24, 2015

If you've read Busy Monsters, you'll be shocked that the same man authored this book. Clearly, Giraldi has some serious range.
This is a violent, tense novel that starts out like a fever dream, and only ratchets up the weird from there. It's pace is unrelenting, and the atmosphere so dark, brooding, and cold that at times I thought I could see my breath!
A taut, gripping thriller that I couldn't put down. Highly recommended.
