This is crime/thriller writing at its best. Won't repeat what others have said better. I've found Patterson disappointing last few years. NOT THIS TIME. The Master is back.

I realize there are already quite a few reviews and this will probably be at the bottom but for anyone who makes it down here, for what it's worth, this is my opinion!
I thought this book was absolutely fabulous. The protagonist, Emmy Dockery's twin sister dies in a fire. Police call it a horrible accident. Emmy calls it a homicide. She's an analyst with the FBI. It take her over a year to convince others at the FBI that they have a serial killer traveling the country.
The serial killer is a really twisted character. This person mercilessly tortures the victims and then sets an "accidental" fire to cover up what was done to them. There is obviously some forensic knowledge. The killer is also keeping a diary of sorts for the police.
I really liked the way the perspective in this book went back and forth between Emmy and the killer. For Emmy the dialogue sounded normal. For the killer the self dialogue was really warped and kind of creepy (but in a good way for a work of fiction). If this were a real person I'd be putting bars on my windows!
The co-narrating with January LaVoy and Kevin Collins was excellent.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book.
