Monday Murder: Psych You Out

The Psychopath and the Rose by Sheldon Cole introduces readers to a very disturbed Dr. George Eager (nice pun), who fantasizes regularly about inflicting pain and suffering on another person. This story is fantastic in every way: the set-up, the suspense and the grand finale. Just enough is revealed about the characters to feel something about each of them, whether it's disgust, fear or awe, which makes the ending that much more powerful.

If you enjoy mystery-horror written in the classic style, you're going to dig Cole.

As always,
