- I keep squawking about the technology: dial-up modems! no mobile phones! Crime-solving has changed in such a short amount of time. The plot of the book would be entirely different in the era of smartphones with GPS and tracking.
- This must be in the first wave of profiler books, after, of course, The Silence of the Lambs. It’s amazing how many other profiler books/movies/tv shows have come out since this book was published. And I somehow never watched the adaptation of this book.
- The cover art for this book is a little on the nose. I mean, I expected a creepy book without the vise on the cover.
So far, this book is more disturbing than what I usually read, but I can’t stop reading. McDermid knows how to pace this book.
