A rejection is nothing more than a necessary step in the pursuit of success. ~Bo Bennett

Derek Harcourt is an author of a book that tells of the horrible crimes committed by a killer known as the NY Slasher. Liking the notoriety of the first book, Derek decides to write another one as he walks in the footsteps of the Slasher. As he moves from state to state he writes chapters that are sent to his editor Sarah Keller to edit and where his journey will end. As Derek travels from the East coast to the West coast, it seems that there are killings being committed with a eerie similarity to the murders that the NY Slasher was known for. The disappearance of this murderer many years ago may have just been a break for him and now he is back.

This book made me say “What?” “Really?” “No Way!” quite a few times. It puts the reader in the middle of a cat and mouse game where you are not sure who the cat and mouse are. With an unusual and unpredictable plot the reader must keep reading. I would dare to call it a first rate thriller from an author that has found another way to pleasantly shock me. Especially with the mentioning of Buffalo, New York, which I have lived in at one time, very cool. Looking for a good mystery to pass the time, this one will not disappoint. The reader is rewarded with the greatest of endings.
