    They kill without mercy. Disappear without trace. They are The Two. And now the stakes are raised once more for Detective January David. 5 lie dead, brutally murdered - the first taken on the night of Halloween and as autumn bleeds into winter more ritualistic murders are discovered. January must battle his demons, for in his mind lies the clue to stopping a ruthless murderer. But his worst nightmares have literally come true when he discovers there's not one, but two twisted killers on the loose.

    What could Will Carver have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The book attempted to make use of some techniques to increase the suspense and drama but failed miserably in a hodge-podge mess:

    * DIFFERENT CHARACTERS point of views - It was nice we got the motivations of different characters in their voice, however, it doesn't work well when those same characters narrate information they shouldn't know. One victim, for example, espouses upon the killers motive. In another example, a victim, says something along the lines of they are dying and blacking out and don't see the killer walking away (or something crazy like that). Sticking to third person narration would have been better.

    * DIFFERENT TIMES - One technique for increasing the suspense of a book is to throw the reader into the middle of the story, go back to the past, and then complete the story to conclusion. This does it a few times over. Also add in the fact that a character's name is "January" and there's even more confusion until the pattern of time/character narration is understood.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The only redeeming quality of this book was that it was free.
