It is now six years since the secret disaster at Jurassic Park, six years since the extraordinary dream of science and imagination came to a crashing end - the dinosaurs destroyed, the park dismantled, the island indefinitely closed to the public. But there are rumors that something has survived.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

A serial killer is causing terror in a large city and expands to the East Coast is brought to justice and put to death in the Electric Chair. Now those that helped put the killer away can sleep at night with their families, or can they and are they safe.

Any additional comments?

A spoiler is below so stop reading if you have not finished the story.
SPOILER WARNING

I liked the accuracy of the city and buildings as they were 100% correct as I grew up where the murders were done and spent lots of time up where the fishing area was.

The story would of been much better if the wrong person was put to death for those crimes not the two killings that was done by the person put to death. This leaves the sick serial killer free to start again which will cause even more terror. The Butcher killings should be removed as that is not needed. Also drop the part where the real killer takes over a body of the husband of the reporter it's to far over the top and is not needed. The fact the real serial killer is still out there will be enough.
