Shelves: serial-killers This is a great thriller. Sure some of the tech. This novel is better than your average, run-of-the-mill serial killer novel. The reasons the killer murders his victims are twofold and the way he hunts his victims is clever.
This is an intelligent killer. I love the This is a great thriller. I love the way he toys with the authorities, running circles around the police and FBI. Lots of surprises in this novel as well, especially what happens when the psychiatrist, Arthur Lenz, tries to trick the killer. Worthy of four stars. A serial killer infiltrates Eros. Known by many usernames, he toys with women while trying to achieve a higher purpose.
The main character, Harper, is a hero, a villain and a victim, being placed into every possible category during this constant race against time trying to save victim after victim. This book is very long, but surprisingly faced paced. I was completely sucked in. The computer aspect of the book is interesting. Although clearly advanced for the time period, I felt a spark of nostalgia reading about how computers and the internet operated over a decade ago. This is real crazy, mind-blowing stuff.
There were lots of disturbing parts, mostly more psychological than gory, although gore certainly had its place too. Mortal Fear is definitely not for those squeamish about sexual crimes and taboos. Sex and high tech are melded to create an exhilarating and terrifying thriller.
