In the quiet coastal town of Montauk, Long Island, a sadistic killer is stalking his prey, waiting for the right moment to unleash his fury.

When a young woman and her young son are found brutally murdered - skinned alive in a frenzied attack - Sheriff Mike Hauser knows he's out of his depth. There's no evidence, no clues and no motive, and Hauser needs someone who has dealt with this level of brutality before.

FBI consultant Jake Cole has a unique ability - to recognize killers' artistic signatures at crime scenes. Called into help with Hauser's investigation, Jake enters the twisted mind of a serial killer. But when he recognizes the killer's signature as the one left on his own mother, brutally murdered thirty years before, the case becomes personal.

In a race against time, Jake knows he must find the killer before the 'bloodman' finds him...

This book was a quick and mostly high-paced read, but overall I was left feeling a bit hollow at the end. Maybe this was the point and if so, I guess the author accomplished his mission. I thought the twist at the end was kind of predictable, lazy and a betrayal of the reader. The whole book gets you to invest in the main characters and then ultimately let me down. It was very dark and also incredibly gruesome when dealing with the details of the violence that takes place. I suppose the author might be trying to challenge our perceptions of good and evil a la Dexter, but where the story went wrong in this respect is that there was no redemptive force at play. I like the genre but this execution didn't do it for me. It was a bit too much and not enough all at the same time.
