This is an experience. I was terrified right from the start. I actually had to put the book down a few times just to catch my breath. I enjoyed the two points of view of the book. Barnes lets us watch the killer make his plans and execute it. Our heroine is young and so brave. We get follow her in her quest to save not only her friend, but future victim of the killer. This book not only gave me the "creeps', but it gave me nightmares as well. I can't wait to continue the journey in Barnes's world. If you love horror stories you can't miss this book!
