This is the story of a very clever serial murderer who is capable of killing people and making it look as though it was a normal death caused by a burning candle falling over and setting their bedroom and then the house on fire. The sister of one of the dead, who happens to work as a researcher for the FBI, is suspicious and doesn't believe her death was accidental but has to convince others, especially the FBI, that the deaths were intentional and the effects of a serial murderer.
Well written but I don't think I would have read this as a book as I don't enjoy short chapters (116), finding it quite difficult to get into that sort of book. I enjoyed listening to the book, the first time I have read/listened to anything by James Patterson and I was kept enthralled by the story and wanting to know what was going to happen. I particularly enjoyed the diary entries read by Kevin T Collins who has a suitably spooky voice.
