This was the first book I've read by Steven Thayer and I wasn't disappointed. You won't know who the killer is until the last pages. He did a nice job w/ character development. If you like thrillers, you'll probably like this one.
I've never been one for horror stories (even ones with really bad special effects) but The Weatherman, by Steve Thayer, has changed my attitude. In a setting not exactly known for murder, Thayer weaves a tangled web of confusion, lust, and, above all, lunacy. I'm still not sure who the Calendar Killer is, and I've read the book twice. BUY THIS BOOK! Summary: Sky High News man Rick Beanblossom, wearing a blue cotton ski mask to hide his disfigured face, discovers a murder mystery right under his nose in Minneapolis.
I loved the book. I was reading the book for a class in school and I was amazed that it kept my attention. I loved the book because the author was from Minnesota and the places that he talked about in the book were places that I know the location or that I have been there before. The best part was to see that in the early 1900's on July 6th there was a temperature of 114 degrees in Minnesota. I checked it out and it was true. I loved that part because July 6th is my birthday. I didn't want to put the book down. It was a thriller and a very exciting one at that.
A serial killer is stalking the Twin Cities. And a group (Reporter, Weatherman and a Producer) from a local TV station is going to find out who it is. There is a love triangle involving the female reporter and the prescient weatherman (he predicted a tornado) and a scarred Viet Nam vet (who wears a mask to hide his burned face). It's a decent thriller and keeps you guessing as to whether or not who the real killer is.
Great book, Hard to put down. I 've already bought his next.
