I'm a pathologist, so a book about an insane, murderous peer - I couldn't resist. Good lord though, this is a weird book and I couldn't finish it. It's a police procedural written in the 90's that fulfills every sexist and racist cliche you'd expect from that era. I cut up dead bodies for a living so I have a decently high threshold for gross, but the gratuitous violence/torture in this book beat me. Okay I get it; your bad guy is super messed up. Thanks for making that so abundantly clear. Narrator was great though!
