ABC DEAD - Ethan Youngblood
This book has been sitting on the pile in the corner that came from somewhere I've completely forgotten about - and it's been on that pile for quite a few years now. So I thought I should pick it up and "get on with it".
Probably shouldn't have bothered. Definitely not my style - trying too hard to be arch and sort of funny, with a plot that simply didn't work on any level and to be honest, when I got to "he said satanically" very nearly became a DNF. Really only got to the end out of sheer bloodymindedness on my part.
Mixed in deep despair and on the verge of suicide, writer Genesis Hawke seeks to free his creative muse by using a newspaper advertisement to lure an at-large serial killer into giving his life story. But nothing is quite what it seems as Hawke soon discovers he is dealing with much more than the ego of a maniacal murderer.
