I enjoyed this book even though the author goes a little overboard with his use of adjectives. The story is that of an extremely creepy serial killer who lives in a small country town in the late 60s. As the story develops the main character sinks deeper and deeper into insanity. The scenes describing the murders and his subsequent actions are graphic and arent for the weak of heart. This book is a very quick read. I am a slow reader and finished it is just a few hours.
