I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles. (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).
I am not surprised to read on the dust jacket that this series is being adapted for TV. To me, it already reads like an episode of Criminal Minds.
I'm reading it for the New Releases square of Halloween Bingo.
