Summary: John Wayne Cleaver is dangerous, and he knows it.
He’s spent his life doing his best not to live up to his potential.
He’s obsessed with serial killers, but really doesn’t want to become one. So for his own sake, and the safety of those around him, he lives by rigid rules he’s written for himself, practicing normal life as if it were a private religion that could save him from damnation.
Dead bodies are normal to John. He likes them, actually. They don’t demand or expect the empathy he’s unable to offer. Perhaps that’s what gives him the objectivity to recognize that there’s something different about the body the police have just found behind the Wash-n-Dry Laundromat—and to appreciate what that difference means.
Now, for the first time, John has to confront a danger outside himself, a threat he can’t control, a menace to everything and everyone he would love, if only he could.
Dan Wells’s debut novel is the first volume of a trilogy that will keep you awake and then haunt your dreams.
I am really enjoying my job’s slow season I have been able to listen to a lot of audio books that I had previously downloaded but never listened to. After listening to this audio book I can say I think this one is better read, simply because I personally did not care for the narrator.
This was a really fun book, Dan Wells is very talented and letting you into his worlds. He is fantastic at describing the situations and worlds so it is always very easy to loose yourself in the book.
That being said I recommend you READ this book vs listening to the audio book like I did. I would have finished this book in a day had I just read it. It too awhile for me to get through the book listening to it.
I will continue to read this series as it does have a very Dexter feel, which is always fun.
