Using ancient black magic, a dangerous, vindictive maniac is made all-powerful by his ability to become invisible. Raping and murdering his way around the States, he is biding his time before fulfilling his one desire - to get even with the high school belle who rejected him years before.

My taste differs from kid books to gory horror books.
HE NOTICED HOW HER BREASTS JIGGLED UNDER HER SWEATER.
This was written in 1985 and Tech wise, has that feel. The content has the feel of the seventies, when writers were more likely to be risqué. This is going to be way to harsh for some. For example: Chapter 2 is a blood orgy, chapter 3, 5, 7 and 32 include rape. When it is not happening, men and women are thinking about it. The last couple of hours is some of the most gut wrenching gross scenes I have ever listened to, and I have listened to a lot in this field.
IT WAS SAMMY INFLICTED
This is one of the better bad guys. He is rotten to the core and has the added advantage of being invisible. I was thoroughly entertained by this story. It is very different from most of what I have read. BEWARE, this book is not for everyone. This is for hardcore splatter porn fans only. Having said that, it is well written.
The writing was good, but this entire story had the feel of being told by horny teenage boy. The author is apparently a complete idiot when it comes to how women actually think and feel. The female main character horribly written. I don't want to spoilers in so I won't into too much detail, but she appears to be what a teenage chauvinistic horny boy would think of a woman. The males aren't much better either and well the story is like a B level action movie.
The narrator was good given what he had for story, and overall this was well read with only a few minor mispronunciations.
The description makes you think this will be a bloody, violent pretty average hardcore horror. And for the most part it is, but with a supernatural/sci-fi twist (not far enough to say which yet). That's all and well, except the characters are so beyond unbelievable and the story so far from what is promised it takes you out of it. I got this book for 5, so I'm not that disappointed by it. But if it was full price I would be giving it one star
