I thought that this one was too close in many respects (plot, characters) to Connelly's superior THE POET. Granted it's been a while, but I found the similarities distracting. It seemed as if Parker was deliberately trying to affect a serial killer chic "style" common to Connelly and Thomas Harris. Too forced. For something original but in a similar vein try Bradley Denton's BLACKBURN.

Parker has let me down since his fourth book [PACIFIC BLUE, maybe?] and a crappy thing entitled (I think) SUMMER OF FEAR. Sorry, fading memory...
