"The truth is I hurt people. It's what I do. It's all I do. It's all I've ever done." 

He lives in your community, in a nice house with a well-tended garden. He shops in your grocery store, bumping shoulders with you and apologizing with a smile. He drives beside you on the highway, politely waving you into the lane ahead of him.  

What you don't know is that he has an elaborate cage built into a secret basement under his garage. And the food that he's carefully shopping for is to feed a young woman he's holding there against her will—one in a string of many, unaware of the fate that awaits her. 

This is how it's been for a long time. It's normaland it works. Perfectly. 

Then he meets the checkout girl from the 24-hour grocery. And now the plan, the hunts, the roomthe others. He doesn't need any of them anymore. He needs only her. But just as he decides to go straight, the police start to close in. He might be able to cover his tracks, except for one small problem—he still has someone trapped in his garage. 

Discovering his humanity couldn't have come at a worse time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Did not enjoy reading this. This book sounded interesting but once I started reading, I really did not enjoy it. It's about a serial killer and I found there wasn't really a point to this book. No one learned an important lesson, there was no moral to the story, nothing. I felt no attachment to any of the characters. I wouldn't recommend this book.

I loved it." -Jamie Mason, author of Three Graves Full and Monday's Lie"A black comedy...Cameron has written a painfully funny story that's littered with corpses, both intentional and unintentional, and proves that sometimes spotting the craziest person on the block isn't quite as easy as it seems." -Kirkus"Blackly humorous." -Publishers Weekly
