My thoughts:

A very good mystery-thriller book, I couldn't put it down! It was a very fast read, only took me two hours to read the whole book.  I thought the story was predictable at first because the story of the killer was provided in the story. But the twist in the story was non-stop, so every page I was like "what has just happened?!" I had to go back and check if I got it right. 

The plot was great and just when I thought the story is over, the author gives us another shocking twist. If you're looking for a great mystery-thriller book, don't miss this one.

About the book:

As a homicide detective, David Seff witnesses some of the most gruesome things life has to offer. He puts his life in danger everyday that he comes to work, visits perilous areas most people wouldn't step foot in, and deals with the scum of the earth. Catching criminals is what Detective Seff does best. This is why he was chosen to lead a task force to discover who shot and killed the well-respected Reverend Michael.
At first, the detective thought it was a random act of violence, but it turns out to be the first victim of a homicidal serial killer.
Throughout the story, you will go back in time to the killer's life as a boy and his desolate life at home with an abusive father, a terrifying encounter in New York City after running away from home, and the grisly murders. The hunt is on.
Will Detective Seff catch the mysterious man causing hysteria amongst the people of Pennsylvania, or there will be no end to the bloodshed?
