In perennial bestseller Brown's newest suspense, heroine Julie Rutledge is positive she knows who the killer is. Proving it, though, is no easy task. Murder movie references are liberally laced throughout the story, but which ones are truly applicable? Intriguing characters weave in and out of the twisty plot as a true psychopath re-enacts his own sick fantasies. Cleverly creepy!
But that changes as Derek begins to believe Julie's claims. Unfortunately Derek and Julie soon realize they're playing in Creighton's own twisted version of a movie. (SIMON AND SCHUSTER, Aug., 400 pp., $26.95)
