John Lutz is pretty predictable in his gore and blood and guts. Standard for him and that is really what I have come to expect from him. His books are always interesting "reads". To me it is always Scott Brick who makes his stories so very good. Don't know if I would be drawn to this author's books without this narrator.

I've listened to most of the books from John Lutz and have to admit they are often filler for me to get through a lapse in audiobook releases. While I like the books quite a bit there are a few things that just do not get me excited about his books. Frank Quinn is always thought of as the powerful mind that captures serial killers but actually he doesn't do much at all and pretty much relies on his team to further the case. Every book also takes place in New York with the killer terrorizing the city and scaring everyone into their apartments. Another signature John Lutz approach to storytelling is bringing you back in time to learn of the killer's upbringing. All these similar plot mechanics exist in Mister X as well. The good news is there are some very interesting twists, turns (and ending) that really make Mister X stand out among other John Lutz Books. I would definately recommend listening to this book but don't think you will be missing much if you pass it by. As always, Scott Brick makes the story even more dramatic and compelling.
