THE CREEP is definitely not for the faint hearted. It is a spell-binding thriller about a ruthless and cold blooded killer.
A psychological thriller in the true tradition of The Silence of the Lambs, THE CREEP takes you deep into the mind of a killer who has roamed America unchecked for the past seven years. He comes to Bill Harvey, the world’s richest and most celebrated hypnotherapist for help, and under hypnosis- the details of his gory past arc laid bare.
But ‘Dr. Bill’ gets a lot more than he bargained for – and so does the reader – as the plot twists and turns towards an extraordinary climax. Before you read this book you will want to deadbolt your doors and secure your windows, because as the book makes plain, Bishman is not the only serial killer out there.WARNING: This book contains a great deal of information on events actually happening in the real world today. Many readers may therefore be disturbed by its content. But once you have picked it up, you will not want to put it down.
COMPLETE AND UNABRIDGED
The Silence of the Lambs, by Thomas Harris, is even better than the successful movie. Like his earlier Red Dragon, the book takes us inside the world of professional criminal investigation. All the elements of a well-executed thriller are working here–driving suspense, compelling characters, inside information, publicity-hungry bureaucrats thwarting the search, and the clock ticking relentlessly down toward the death of another young woman. What enriches this well-told tale is the opportunity to live inside the minds of both the crime fighters and the criminals as each struggles in a prison of pain and seeks, sometimes violently, relief.
Clarice Starling, a precociously self-disciplined FBI trainee, is dispatched by her boss, Section Chief Jack Crawford, the FBI’s most successful tracker of serial killers, to see whether she can learn anything useful from Dr. Hannibal Lecter. Lecter’s a gifted psychopath whose nickname is “The Cannibal” because he likes to eat parts of his victims. Isolated by his crimes from all physical contact with the human race, he plays an enigmatic game of “Clue” with Starling, providing her with snippets of data that, if she is smart enough, will lead her to the criminal. Undaunted, she goes where the data takes her. As the tension mounts and the bureaucracy thwarts Starling at every turn, Crawford tells her, “Keep the information and freeze the feelings.” Insulted, betrayed, and humiliated, Starling struggles to focus. If she can understand Lecter’s final, ambiguous scrawl, she can find the killer. But can she figure it out in time?
