I read the premis and thought, could be interesting . Glad I took the chance. My serial killer /PSD allogory was sadly lacking before this. This book is a solid 3.75. There is also a YA book based on the same idea and I think I will get that also. Definitely worth your time cash or credit. Enjoy

I will assume you've read the publisher's summary (the book is about a mad experiment to clone famous serial killers, etc., etc.).
Apparently, there was a YA book released with this book written from the perspective of one of the clones (who pairs with the main protagonist to try to solve the mystery). Well, I can't imagine how much more YA than THIS version it can be. Except for the incredibly vicious, brutal (and oftentimes gratuitous) depictions of violence, this certainly did not feel like an adult novel.
Or perhaps the plot was simply too ambitious to leave room for much of anything else (such as character development). The sheer amount of space that had to be devoted to explaining who all these serial killers were created many stops-and-starts along the story.
All in all, it seemed to ramble.
If you're looking for a good clone-from-evil story, read the classic, The Boys from Brazil, instead.
