    I

    Why must plot spoilers feel the need to reveal every detail of the book. Just because you read the book does not give you the right to give a detailed book report here. Read the other reviews and learn how to write a review. They do not write a cliffnote book report. Please think of others before you go revealing the entire storyline.

    DISTURBING!!!

    This is one of those books that you just cannot put down like you can't help but gawk at a horrible wreck! The twisted thoughts and actions of the "bad guy" in this are unthinkable! The author does a tremendous job of hooking you even when you want to throw the book across the room. Mr. Steele's ideas of "helping" his victims is remeniscent of Saw and his torture ideas remeniscent of Dee Snyder's Strangeland. Hope this gives you some idea of what you are in for. If you like a good intense read, this is it. I think I was grinding my teeth and bouncing my leg through two-thirds of this book.

    Thanx Mr. Adkisson (I think) for a terrifying ride. I hope I can sleep in peace again sometime in this era!!! Oh, and by the way, GREAT ending!

    Deeply Chilling Thriller

    Nicholas Steele, a sadistic tattoo artist, is obsessed with skin, craving a flawless canvas for his scarification masterpieces. This book is fast paced and realistically terrifying. The descriptions involving the tattoos and scarification are so well done and so deeply researched that they are compelling, frightening, yet morbidly and artistically intriguing. The villain is all too creepy real. I understood his motivations and his fascination with his art enough to worry that someone like him was out there in the world. The main character, Paige, is also real, not painted as some fantasy female ninja, but someone who must try to survive by her guts, rage, and her wits. The heart of the story centers on the love between Paige and Eddie and what they are willing to do for each other despite the most horrifying circumstances. Eddie's selflessness also draws you in and keeps you turning the pages. I was impressed with the author's word choices and insights that often evoked vivid images and emotions, and found myself rereading phrases for pleasure. This is one of those memorable books you think back on and feel like you learned something. I always enjoy intelligent writing and this is one of the best books I've read in a long time. I'm hooked and will be back for more from author Kevin Adkisson.

    Fantastic mystery suspense genre novel! I was intriqued and unable to put it down until the last page was finished. Wonderful characters and building suspense kept me on the edge of my seat. I hope to see many more books from Kevin Adkisson!
