* I was given a free copy of this book for review purposes. The review is based solely on my opinion and was not influenced by author or publisher.
Politicians of the world are falling victim to an 'imaginative' serial killer. Detective John Yardley and FBI agent Frank Williams are on the case, then they are off the case and finally they are put back on the case. They get kicked off the case (and in the case of FBI agent Williams, fired) because they fail to apprehend Dorian before he kills the President. They get re-assigned to the case because the rest of the world seems unable to get their hands on Dorian as well. Dorian has a special skill set that enables him to exact his vengeance and elude the authorities. It will take some unique individuals to bring Dorian down, do such people exist?
I loved the idea behind the story, it was smart and imaginative. The reason that Dorian was looking for vengeance was unique and inspired and something I could get behind. Minus the horrific murders of course. The characters were interesting but I would have liked to see more development of Yardley and Williams. There was a lot going on in this story and at times it got a little confusing bouncing between all the locations and trying to sort through all the information.
Overall this was an enjoyable read and I would recommend it to readers who enjoy thrillers, police stories, horror and a little bit of fantasy.
My Rating: 3.5/5 Stars
