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