Could you take the life of a stranger to save the life of someone you love?

When an enigmatic and infamous serial killer known simply as ‘Mister’, brings retired FBI specialist and forensic psychologist Dr. Jeremy Foster into his orchestra of terror that’s exactly what he must answer.

For three long, hellish years Mister has terrorized the state of California with his a string of gruesome murders and the FBI are not any closer to discovering his identity. To add insult to injury Mister frequently engages the public with videos of his killings, ridiculing the authorities for their inability to catch him and regaling them with haunting sermons on the nature of reality as he perceives it.

When Dr. Jeremy Foster inadvertently becomes enmeshed in the Mister case he sees an opportunity to help put the serial killer away once and for all, but to stop a monster he must first become one.

my thoughts

For a crime thriller, I’d say this one was written effectively in terms of getting the creepy and gruesome vibe. The gruesome parts were really gruesome I can hardly eat my dinner after reading them. I guess I should say, if you’re planning to read this, you should need a strong stomach especially in the early parts of the book.

The way this books started was highly interesting and curious. I was so eager to dig into the book because I want to find out more and find the answers to the secrets and the questions. However, somewhere past the middle, I slowly lost interest. Not that the book was bad. There are several point of views that are shown in every few chapters. And the deeper I get into the book, the more questions I have (with no answers) and the more confuse I get.And by confuse I don’t mean confuse as to who this ‘ Mister’ guy really is but confuse as in, I don’t understand anymore where the story is going. I guess it was written that way so as not to make it too easy for the reader to figure things out. But the thing is, I want to know how these things are relevant to the story. I need answers or even a hint that there’ll be a good answer. And because I’m someone who’s really bad at remembering names, I think my brain has jumbled some of them. Adding to the confusion I am feeling.

The only part of the story that I can follow clearly is that of Mary and Doctor Jeremy. I feel like I’m reading two different stories (maybe even 3) every time a chapter turns to a different perspective.

It’s probably my fault because I don’t think I paid enough attention to learn that this is part one of two when the author requested for me to read it. I’m not sure if I want to read the next part even though I’m curious as to how Jeremy will handle the shit suddenly thrown at him.
