    Convenient, but twisty.

    I'll agree with the previous reviewer that the plot of this book was often very convenient. I don't think you would find anything similar to this in the real world. And unlike the previous review, I don't see any right wing stances being made by the author or really any stances at all. With that said, however, I really enjoyed this book. This was the first book I have read by Green and I was just expecting an average read to pass some time. I figured I could guess about anything that was going to happen, but if it got my heart rate up a few times, it would be worth it. Then, so many unexpected events and twists starting occuring I was constantly asking 'what is he going to do?'. You are constantly wondering how he is going to get through this, but also when the shoe is going to fall. This is not the most incredible fiction ever written, but if you want a quick, entertaining read that can get your heart pumping, I definately recommend this book for you.

    I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. I picked it up thinking it was going to be another trite serial killer novel but I was pleasantly surprised. I was highly entertained and I must admit, the book did really scare me! Don't read this one at night!

    interesting serial killer tale

    Though the proof is overwhelming that repeat sex offender Eugene Tupp raped the fifteen year old teen, the New York Judge rules key evidence was illegally obtained by the police and not admissible. Apparently, the search warrant was for Tupp¿s house and not his garage. Former prosecutor and highly regarded attorney Jack Ruskin is irate that while his daughter lies semi-comatose this animal will receive a slight slap of the wrist instead of locking him away forever. Jack needs vengeance and he finds it by killing an Upstate sex offender. Tasting blood and not feeling fully satiated, Jack is obsessed with wanting to exterminate sex offenders. He uses the net to find his prey, but soon the FBI realizes that a serial killer is murdering sex offenders. Special Agent Amanda Lee begins searching for a culprit, who she sympathizes with as she has a child and her partner was recently killed by a child abuser. Though the premise has been used before (Bronson), THE FIFTH ANGEL starts off as if the reader will receive an action packed yet philosophical look at defining justice. However, once Jack turns into a typical serial killer, the story line intensifies the action at the expense of moving the audience into the gray definitions of justice. Tim Green provides a strong thriller that many fans will say could have been brilliant. Harriet Klausner
