I read a lot about seriel kills, all of them. Some of my most recent: Albert fish, and HH Holmes! Just to switch it up, I just finished A Prayer For Owen Meany, by John Irving. It really surprised me at the paranormal overtone of the book. I found myself wanting to know what's next!
I remember reading this about 15 years ago when I had to ride the Tokyo subways for an hour every day. I remember the book made me laugh out loud several times. If you have ever ridden a Tokyo subway then you can imagine all the dirty looks I received. It was a long time ago, but I remember it was about a small boy who knew exactly when and where he was going to die and how he spent his life preparing for that moment.
