Yes, that's right. I'm a huge serial killer novel fan. My favorite author is Jeffrey Deaver, but i am always looking for new authors since Jeffrey only puts out one book a year. I love the whole predictable yet suspenseful setup: the introduction to the serial killer, his or her initial heinous act, the introduction of the hero, the call to action....the surprises and turns throughout the novel....and just when I think I know what's going on, the major twist ending.
One of my favorite serial killer novels is called THE COFFIN DANCER by Jeffrey Deaver. This book is the sequel bestselling The Bone Collector (the book is WAY better than the movie), again starring quadriplegic forensic specialist Lincoln Rhyme and his beautiful assistance, the detective Amelia Sachs. Rhyme is called in to track down a contract killer, known as the Coffin Dancer, who has been hired to eliminate three witnesses in an upcoming federal trial. The trial is set to begin just 48 hours from the novel's beginning. Rhyme and Amelia have just that much time to ID the Dancer and keep him from murdering the remaining witnesses. But there' s a catch...the Dancer isn't what or who anyone expected....
Just when I thought I had the book figured out the last three chapters totally took my breath away.
I love the guilty pleasure of reading a spine-tingler like this over a pint of cake-batter ice cream.
So, do any of you like the serial killer novels? Which ones? I'm always looking for good authors!
