Urge to Kill | [John Lutz]

Urge to Kill

Homicide detective Frank Quinn can't stay retired when a new breed of murdering madman is on the prowl. In a city terrorized by bloody brutality, Quinn and his team hunt a psychopath who lures beautiful women into a night of unbridled passion, then wakes them to a vicious, drawn-out death. Stumbling over a trail of horribly defiled bodies, Quinn can't seem to catch up to the killer - because the killer is about to catch up to him.

    "Good job at connecting plots"

    Lutz did an exemplary job of weaving a story with multiple plots into a cohesive package. Readers/listeners are given enough clues along the way to piece together what is happening, although the final twist strained credibility. I am a fan of Scott Brick but felt the highs and lows of his narration in this book presented somewhat of a challenge. I generally listen to audio books in the car and his "whisper" deliveries caused scores of "rewinds" for me. Not every reader will enjoy the comic relief provided by Pearl and her mole, but I think it worked. The four stars I gave this book were closer to three than to five but I would recommend the listen to those who enjoy this genre.

    "Awesome, of course!!!"

    Urge to Kill is just more great suspenseful writing by Mr. Lutz. I really enjoy his books and this is just as good as Night Kills and In For The Kill. I love going to bed and putting on a Lutz book on my Ipod. He's the best.

    "Too Many Storylines"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    No one.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Another Frank Quinn book


    What didn’t you like about Scott Brick’s performance?

    I like Scott Brick. It was the book. Too many storylines going on.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    286 minutes into the book I was still confused on the different characters. The only characters after that 4+ hours that I could distinguish were Quinn, Federman, and Pearl. Have loved all the Frank Quinn books. This one, couldn't make heads or tails of it.
