LOOKING GLASS KILLER is a realistic portrayal of a serial killer

Las Cruces, NM - Few people in this world are as dangerous than a serial killer.  Serial killers have psychopathic tendencies that urge them to kill.  There have been infamous serial killers such as Ted Bundy and Jeffrey Dahmer.  They appeared as normal, everyday people.  That allowed them to get close to their potential victims.The author wrote a very good crime/suspense novel. It keeps the reader wanting to know more of the reasons and why they do what they do. This book introduces veteran police detective Lucia Vieira and her understudy Mike Rafferty.  They are on the hunt for a serial killer known as X-Man. They discover that X-Man is not the ordinary serial killer.   He appears to be possessed with a psychopathic urge to kill.  The city is filled with terror.  The killer is on the loose.  He must be caught so the city's fear can be stopped.  The author made me feel as if I was in that city, fearing the killer may strike again at any time.  No one was safe.  The book was written so realistically.  You are getting a look into the mind of a psychopath. The author wrote the characters with such detail.  The story was full of twists and turns that made me drop my jaw every time I turned the page.  The author takes the reader on a journey that may fill you with wonder.  Why or what happens to cause these serial killers become what they are? I have to say that I absolutely loved some of the chapter titles. One I really liked was the first chapter, Jabberwocky Dreams. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys thrillers. This is definitely one you won't want to miss.  Will you be able to figure out who this pervert is?  You might be surprised.
The first book in the trilogy is:
Finding Himself: From New Mexico to the Sierra Madre and Back

I was given a complimentary copy of LOOKING GLASS KILLER from the author Floyd Merrell  for my view of the book. No other compensation took place.

I would give this book 4 STARS.
