But the future he gets is not the one he had in mind.

User Review - Flag as inappropriate

This book doesn't have many redeeming features; the text swings between tedious lists of '90s celebrities and fashion labels to gratuitous scenes of sex and torture. The author does a great job of intriguing you into continuing to read by keeping the level of anxiety high from about a third of the way through the book. Unfortunately the long wait to the end isn't worth it, as nothing is revealed about the true nature of the crimes, or the reasons behind them. Overall I would not recommend this book to anyone; the trek just isn't worth the summit.
