Overview

Myth Man by Alex Mueck

A serial killer is on a killing spree of the religious in New York City, and a seasoned police detective is the only one who can stop him.

He is a lion, and the religious cattle his prey. A serial killer is focused on severing religion's stranglehold on humanity in order to cleanse the world of superstitions, religious leaders, and gullible citizens. Myth Man is preparing to unleash an unholy vengeance.

Lieutenant Dominick Presto is one of New York City's finest police detectives. While the obese Presto battles prejudices from within his own department, he matches his wits with one of the most sensationalized killer in the city's history. But Myth Man fears no one. And the murder spree begins. Hailed as the Son of Satan by the local newspapers, Myth Man uses hidden contacts and disguises as he moves from victim to victim, while Presto attempts to decipher his psychotic mind in order to predict his next move.

The serial killer has a plan. And soon the world will come to know him, celebrate him, and perhaps worship him-for he is Myth Man.

I read the author's first book and couldn't wait for this one to come out. It's even better. Alex Mueck has an imagination that's both incredible and, at times, a bit warped. The book will truly keep you guessing. Read it! You won't be sorry.

An excellent novel of suspense, one that once started was hard to put down. Intelligent mystery. I was full of anxiety, waiting for the plot to untangle. There are some surprising twists in the end leaving reader with something to contemplate, and expectation for more. Waiting for the next book by this author. Great read!

Mueck is proving himself to be a true suspense novelist with his second novel, Myth Man. As before, he tells a gripping story but ends up surprising the reader; not one you can predict halfway through. I am looking forward to more from this promising young author.

Alex Mueck provides the right touch of suspense and easy to read in this serial killer book. It possesses a great story line, smooth flow, not overly complex plot but also not spoon fed to the reader. The author was able to create a serious mood and within the same page, make me laugh out loud...a skill most authors will never achieve. He has a knack for bringing the reader to a place, while knowing the characters and feeling the tension, without being tediously descriptive. I look forward to reading more works from this author.

Mueck's follow up to his debut "The Account" doesn't disappoint. Myth Man has a timely storyline/backdrop in terms of social context. The author has an entertaining writing style, great character development and a unique ability to describe the essence of the characters quotes and actions. Myth Man is smartly written - you'll find yourself anxious to get to the next page.

They are difficult to find, but there are a few who are out there - authors who not just spin a great story, but speak to you as if they already know you. Such things can't be taught easily, but Mueck seems to have that gift - the ability to effortlessly guide you through a story. Myth Man doesn't seem forced at all - it's more akin to him monitoring your dreams, waiting for your worst nightmare to arise, and then publishing it. Those living in New York City will appreciate the attention paid to the small details of everyday life in the Big Apple. Those outside NYC will still be able to appreciate the authenticity presented in the book. The author's understanding of the mind of a serial killer is also essential to the believability of the novel. Those are key elements - they allow for a story or situation that COULD be real, even though it's fiction, which makes for the best kind of story, because it's difficult to forget once you're finished with the last page. I anxiously await Alex Mueck's next novel.
