I have not read the first book in this series. I would recommend reading it first. I would have understood Jakey’s plight a little sooner. It took me several pages to figure out…he was the one that got away.
This tale started out fairly slow. I almost bailed. But then it picked up and turned into pretty fantastic read. Once the anticipation kicks in, this novel becomes riveting. Not sure I want to ever encounter the pure evil of the Bone Collector —-SHIVER!
I received this novel from Macmillan Publishing via Netgalley for a honest review
