Dream State by Robert E. Crull, 2009, 210 pages
I would consider this to be an R rated book and meant for adults.
It is a wickedly twisted story and all of the characters are interesting. Drew Sovern, the killer, takes you on an adventure through the inner working of his mind. You can feel his wide range of emotions and feel present through all of his deceptions and mind games. He is extremely organized and controlling in all aspects of his life and loves the thrill of feeling superior to the women he seduces and kills and to the authorities who never find a trace of him at the crime scenes.
This book will keep you riveted through all of the twists and turns and the conclusion will blow you away. I must say that after that surprise ending, I read the book again just to see if I missed "clues" along the way. It felt like you were on a thrilling roller coaster ride with lots of twists and turns.
Masterfully written and I am confident that we will be hearing much more from Mr. Crull in the future. I for one certainly hope so!!!
