SHE CAN MAKE SENSE OF A COMPLEX CRIMINAL MIND.
Evelyn Talbot, a psychiatrist at a maximum-security prison in Alaska, studies some of the world's worst serial killers. But she's about to meet her most elusive patient at Hanover House yet: Dr. Lyman Bishop, AKA the Zombie Maker given his fondness for performing ice-pick lobotomies on his victims. A brilliant cancer researcher, Bishop is either the most cunning psychopath Evelyn has ever encountered--or he is wrongly convicted.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A CRIMINAL CAN SEE INTO HER OWN?
When a new ice-pick fatality occurs, it seems Bishop really was wrongly convicted. Except...Evelyn has a personal connection to the victim and that suggests the killer may be someone from her own past: Jasper Moore, her high school boyfriend who tortured her and left her for dead when she was only sixteen. Jasper also murdered three of her friends--and was never caught. Is he trying to send a message with this copycat crime? The only thing Evelyn knows for sure is that if Jasper is on her trail, she might not be able to escape again . . .
I absolutely loved reading this book! I've loved all Brenda Novak books that I've read, and yeah, this series is dark and mysterious and awesome, and just so enjoyable to read! So yeah, I was glad that we got this book!
There's new psychopaths to be examined, like Dr. Lyman Bishop, who was really creepy! He was almost convincing that he was innocent, but there was just something about him! I'm really glad that Evelyn went to the lengths that she did, even if it caused problems, because it was the right thing to do!
We were in the head of Jasper a bit more than the first book. And yeah, these bits, they added a horror element to these books, he was getting closer, we knew, but Evelyn didn't. Yeah, that was really, really creepy!
But that ending, oh! Those were some tricky decisions that were red herrings, and then things were happening, and it was like a car crash, you couldn't look away! So tense, and so great to read! Such a great ending!
This book was really fantastic, and I can't wait for the next book, it's going to be amazing!
