An unexpected ending. A nice alternative to the usual thing we find in thriller books.

Insane Ending!

I read the preceding book by this author and it was pretty good, so I gave this one a chance. I'm glad I did and I did not really know what direction it was going throughout most of the story. to say that the ending is a surprise is an understatement. The story is read professionally and entertainingly so by the reader. As for the author, what a nutcase! Completely sadistic and depraved writing at the end and I mean that in the best possible way. After reading this I have to feel that there is no way Richard Aleas should be left alone around any woman.
