Poor Leo, a victim of his environment? Maybe. The book tells the story of good vs. pure evil. It takes you into the mind of a psychological serial killer who captures the interest of a local police chief, investigating several murders in his jurisdiction. The story introduces Leo as a young boy who kills for fun and how he matures into a calculated social predator. Leo has honed his skills and now, mostly targets females of young girls. Leo takes pleasure in stalking, torturing and terrorizing his victims as he takes them home to kill them. In Leo's quest to broaden his murdering sprees, he traverses several states which eventually involves detectives in a multi jurisdictional search. As the book progresses, it shows the dedication and personal endurance these officers shared and to what lengths they would go to in an effort to capture and put Leo behind bars. The author draws you in and hooks you right away. You will not be able to put the book down. I can assure you, from now on, you will always be one hundred percent aware of your surroundings. Well done, Mr. Rose.

I've worked homicides. This book is very realistically written and will scare the hell out of you, as there are people out there like Little Boy Blue...and they are pure evil.
WOW, what a thriller! Couldn't put the book down. Like real life gruesome criminal investigations, this is a battle between good and evil.
