    FBI behavioral psychologist Daniel Clark has been made famous by his argument that religion is one of society's greatest antagonists. What Daniel doesn't know is that his obsessive pursuit of a serial killer - known only as "Eve" - will end in his own death at Eve's hand. Twenty minutes later Daniel is resuscitated, only to be haunted by those 20 missing minutes.

    "Unbelievable characters, strident narrator"
    Overall

    The plot of this book is decent, but something just rings false about the characters. Their decisions and actions, such as an FBI agent being withholding information to allow a civilian to be the first to an active crime scene, are weird and poorly motivated, even within context. All of this is exacerbated by narration that is consistently strident. Every charter is responds to every situation with querulous intensity, and you end up simply getting tired of all the hissing and snapping. This was just not a pleasant book to listen to.

    A terrible accident takes Edgar Freemantle's right arm and scrambles his memory and his mind, leaving him with little but rage as he begins the ordeal of rehabilitation. When his marriage suddenly ends, Edgar begins to wish he hadn't survived his injuries. He wants out. His psychologist suggests a new life distant from the Twin Cities, along with something else.

    "The Mature King"
    Overall

    Stephen King just keeps getting better. Less gore and more characterization in every book. His words and structure are pure poetry here. I loved the nods to John D. McDonald, particularly the shambling side-kick who steals the show from the main character. I will never forget Wireman.
