Book #55–The Basement

41DvsV lKWL._SL200_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-dp,TopRight,12,-18_SH30_OU01_AA200_A serial killer is loose in NY. We have the book split into two parts. One is in the first person, the killer’s mind as they have kidnapped a young secretary and are training her to obey. The second is in first person as well, a young man targeted by police, angry at them, a screen writer that has feelings of frustration over secretaries not forwarding his screenplays to directors and actors. He’s got a lot of good ones, if only the secretaries would let them through.

The Basement goes back and forth, leading us along that the killer is secure in their mind, but Martin is frustrated by the police being on his tail. Is he the killer?

Read it to find out. It’s definitely a little sick, but it’s fascinating and the twist at the end got me.
