Ryne Douglas Pearson has been compared to both Thomas Harris and James Patterson. In Top Ten he delves into the heart and mind of a tormented man who becomes the terrifying killer known as Michaelangelo. Michaelangelo believes himself to be an artist of unparalleled vision. He stages elaborate murders and sends pictures of his “work” to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. During an attack at a post office, he sees that he is number 10 on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted poster. Enraged, he decides to take his “art” in a new direction. He will become number one by killing everyone else on the list.
When up-and-coming FBI agent Ariel Grace is assigned to the task force, she discovers that number five is actually another agent under deep cover. Now Ariel finds herself in a desperate race to find one of her own before Michaelangelo does. Ryne Douglas Pearson’s Top Ten is a look at both the madness that produces human monsters and the dedication of those determined to stop them. George Guidall’s chilling narration pulls the listener right into the middle of this suspense filled non-stop tour de force.
