Publisher's Summary

Clive Barrett is a fast learner. His first kills were amateurish, but Clive knows that practice makes perfect. Soon, he expects to be one of the most notorious serial killers in the UK. He expects to be number one.

There is just one problem: one of Clive's victims simply won't stay dead.

It turns out that one of Clive's early kills wasn't just sloppy; it wasn't a kill at all. Now, improving his craft might just be the least of Clive's worries, because the woman he thought he'd murdered knows his name. She knows where he lives.

And she's coming for him….

    "The characterization killed it. Pun intended."
    Any additional comments?

    I tried getting into this book, I really did. It sounded interesting and I REALLY wanted to like it. There was just too much wrong with the characterizations that I just couldn't identify with it, thus the enjoyment was sucked right out of it (for me).

    The story premise was good. However, all the issues I have with the book wrap around to the adage, "Write what you know." The author's characterization of the female characters was not good (it was off-base and undeveloped), as was the characterization of the protagonist. When the book's POV was in that of the female characters, I seriously wanted to shake the author, asking if he'd ever met a woman before. It was weird: I didn't get a hint of misogyny, just the overall feeling that the author couldn't identify, not even one iota, with a woman. I almost gave him a pass for the protagonist, but as I got deeper into the story and was thinking about it, I just couldn't. How many authors have done volumes of research to add to their storyline, settings, characters, etc.? Yes, yes - it's fiction, but there needs to be some plausibility in order for the reader to identify with the book (and there is SO MUCH research, so many books, about serial killers that helpful facts and guidelines would have been relatively easy to compile).

    Now, the rating... 2 vs. 1 star. Because the author used correct connotation and grammar and did have a good story concept, I rated it 2 as opposed to 1 star.
