Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Spiral Into Darkness
He blends in. He is successful, intelligent and methodical. There are no clues. There are no leads. The only thing the FBI and local police have to go on is the method of death: two bullets to the face- gruesome and meant to send a message. But it’s difficult to understand any message coming from a dark and damaged mind. Two adopted boys, struggling in their own world, have no idea they are the next targets. Neither does their family. And neither does local law enforcement.
Getting into the mind of the serial killer
He rarely displayed emotion except when the appropriate social situation called for it. On demand, he could feign anger, surprise, shock, or doubt. Even happiness and joy though they took more work. Like an actor. However, he viewed himself to be more of a chameleon than an actor.
He watched the news conference and concluded they did not have a clue. None. The blond FBI agent was no match for him. Beauty over brains, except he did not think she was all that good looking either.
Free and clear, just as he had been and always will be, forever and ever, amen. He chuckled at his little joke, the smile disappearing as quickly as it appeared.
