This book is just as disturbing as you think it is. It's also a good story, and the beginning of what could be a good series.
... If you can stomach having it read to you by someone who sounds like Robert Stack of "Unsolved Mysteries." The narrator would be perfect for a hard-boiled detective book, or some kind of adventure/war story, but his choppy, monotone narration grates the whole way through this book, along with his strange EMPHASIS of CERTAIN WORDS for no apparent REASON. This book needed a quiet, expressive voice to read it, somebody who could have pulled off a more "believable" serial killer.
Still, the book was worth it for the story, if nothing else.
