SummaryAdd a Summary
This book was a little long but once you start reading you have to know the ending. It is creepy and shows how easy it is to be targeted by a sociopath.Important to be aware and know where your stuff is. Joe is running a book store and this seems to be where he acquires his ladies. When he gets with Beck, she is as messed up as he is, and this gets her into trouble. I think I disliked Beck more than Joe. Beck was a user of people and situations. She was a slob and very irresponsible. With her possessions and others emotions. The section where Joe is training so he can kill Peach was scary, but would you really buy the story of a suicide where the person puts rocks in her pockets.
Joe turns out to be a serial killer of love.
Read and see what you think It would make a good movie.
