This book is not for the squeamish or faint of heart. Though the murders are not sensationalized and and Pobi doesn't go out of his way to give you that 'eeeeeew!' reaction, you'll instinctively have it just for the sheer factor of the horror of the murders. This is not your average murderer and these are not your average dead bodies. Though described in great detail, the part that will get you in the gut is the fact that the murders took place at all, not the horrific remains that are left behind.
I was really excited to read this book, thinking I was in for a fast-paced experience. The book starts off incredibly slowly. It took me several chapters before I actually cared what was going on. Once I got into it though, I couldn't stop myself from guessing what would happen next and the rapid page turning began. What started as a long, dull read became a fascinating one that I couldn't wait to get to the conclusion of. The pace between the murderer and the hurricane is perfectly placed, keeping you interested in both as you delve alternately into them.
