Suspense/Thriller: Unremarkable storytelling! Sounds as chilling as the Bone Collector and as intruiging as the Truman Show... what a combination.
If made into a movie...
WHO WOULD WANT TO SEE IT? Fans of this talented author or of other thrillers of course!
A cunning serial killer obviously has an extremely bad attitude, with a taste for virtual reality.
With the atmosphere of a cat-and-mouse game, providing clues, essentially challenging police.
It boasts of interesting ideas. Such as the fascinating element of how an investigator or an investigation can empower a mass murderer.
