Review for the abridged audiobook.I listened to this as an abridged audiobook and felt that even that was too long. The plot seemed to proceed at a rather tedious pace, leaving me disinterested in the characters or their fates.We meet Harry Blake as he bids farewell to his beloved wife at her death bed. Her dying wish was that Harry should take their young son, Tom, back to Harry's childhood home and his aunt Kathleen, who had raised him after the death of his own parents.But Kathleen is not the only reason that Harry is drawn back to Fisher's Hill. He has never forgotten his first love, Judy, whom he had abandoned when he discovered that she had lied to him.Will he find Judy? Will he be able to forgive her for her lies? Will we learn the reason why she had lied?The story unravels in rather predictable fashion. There was one unexpected turn towards the end but I found that rather more unbelievable than the conclusion that we were being drawn to.If this had been in book form it would probably have stayed on my shelf but, being an audiobook, it got an airing as I never have enough in-car listening. Sadly, I can only say that I found it a bit boring - I don't think I'm a great fan of Ms Cox.

I knew this guy, this killer. I also knew the story because I know the people involved. I had to put it down several times because it was so horrifying to read (the diaries). Knowing the back story, I was impressed at how they put it together. Yes, he had a bad childhood. The point of telling this is to point out that had someone taken a chance on him and cared, he might not have done what he did. But what he did was horrible, and how they got to him is interesting. The book is not just about the killer, but how they stopped him, and what they stopped. It is chilling to think what he could and would have done.

regarding how Jason Massey became such a monster. Yes there was brief mention of sexual abuse (but that doesn't mean a person will turn into a killer) and yes his mother was a lazy slob -- again not a reason to decapitate a young girl. It might have been a better book had the author taken a more indepth look into Jason's pathetic life.
