A GREAT BOOK!!!!!

This book really has it all!!!! It is intelligent, thrilling, terrifying, and even funny at times! Funaro does an excellent job with his characters, allowing you to get to know them and become invested in their lives. This is such an original plot - I don't want to give...
This book really has it all!!!! It is intelligent, thrilling, terrifying, and even funny at times! Funaro does an excellent job with his characters, allowing you to get to know them and become invested in their lives. This is such an original plot - I don't want to give anything away - and it really makes you think! It hooks you on the first page and doesn't let up, taking you on twists and turns. I'm unashamed to say it even gave me nightmares!!!!! Funaro is excellent, as is The Sculptor - BUY THIS BOOK!!! I can't wait for his next one!!!!!!!

Interesting plot but poor execution.

Very difficult to wade through the repetitious, long winded descriptions of why things were as the were and what everybody was thinking.

    Somewhat original premise, but poorly executed

    The prologue and first few chapters are interesting, but everyhing becomes massively implausible to such an extent that I can't reccomend this. Basically, this is below average pulp fiction.

    Interesting but...

    The premise and plot were quite interesting. One chapter in particular describing a mother's revelation that her child was deceased was perhaps one of the most compelling chapters I have ever read in a mystery. However, the overall novel is weighed down by leaps in logic, suspension of reality, and cliche. The climatic scene is about as formulaic as they come. Overall, a good start, but disappointed by the end.
