I think I've gone on record too as not liking books with the serial killer alternating chapters in first person (especially when it involves the use of italics!), but it didn't bug me at all with Calibre. I guess this is the first time a character like that has a voice I didn't mind.

Otherwise, I'll echo Stewart's comments that this was a great read.
