Patterson and Farsworth, for such a wonderful piece. Alex McKnight- in both the mind aspects of his personality and in his physical states within this book? A patient suddenly decides he doesn't want to talk to psychiatrist Randall Beck and runs from the office. While I don't love villains who are always one step ahead of everyone else, and who can always outsmart law enforcement, Livermore was one creepy character who made me shudder.

Do you want to read something you cannot put down? He is the Can't say how much i love this book! Nothing goes as planned for the good guys; the killer escapes and kills again, leading Alex on a cross-country chase before the connection between the two becomes clear and someone Alex cares about is in mortal danger. Actually this one is horror with a capital H.
Alex shows up, and instead of taking appropriate precautions, knowing what he's dealing with, just walks right into the Livermore house. In fact - save perhaps for the knock-down, drag-'em-out ending involving almost super-human feats - this is my pick of the litter so far. There is a serial killer who was caught on camera on the video that the man on the cruise had running in his home. Not even as part of a decent plot. It started out interesting but then became very unbelievable.
