Publisher's Summary

John works in his family's mortuary and has an obsession with serial killers. He wants to be a good person but fears he is a sociopath, and for years he has suppressed his dark side through a strict system of rules designed to mimic "normal" behavior. Then a demon begins stalking his small town and killing people one by one, and John is forced to give in to his darker nature in order to save them.
As he struggles to understand the demon and find a way to kill it, his own mind begins to unravel until he fears he may never regain control. Faced with the reality that he is, perhaps, more monstrous than the monster he is fighting, John must make a final stand against the horrors of both the demon and himself.

Most Helpful

Great, if visceral book, terrible narrator.

This book is just as disturbing as you think it is. It's also a good story, and the beginning of what could be a good series.

... If you can stomach having it read to you by someone who sounds like Robert Stack of "Unsolved Mysteries." The narrator would be perfect for a hard-boiled detective book, or some kind of adventure/war story, but his choppy, monotone narration grates the whole way through this book, along with his strange EMPHASIS of CERTAIN WORDS for no apparent REASON. This book needed a quiet, expressive voice to read it, somebody who could have pulled off a more "believable" serial killer.

Still, the book was worth it for the story, if nothing else.

good story - painful narration

This story was great, however the narration was absolutely painful. The main character is supposed to be a young teenager, freshman in high school young, and the narrator sounds about fifty. Another reviewer likened him to Robert Stack, and I whole heartedly concur with that comparasion. I really wish I had merely read the book and not listened to the audio version. But the story is still great.
