Deranged is very disturbing. I found the graphic descriptions of rape and torture difficult to get past, especially the opening where a twelve year old is tortured physically and emotionally as his life is taken. I almost put it down at that point but something compelled me to continue reading. The plot is unusual and fresh, the characters mostly deranged but interesting. The five antagonists are pure evil and the protagonists are borderline crazy. No one gets out of this story unscathed. If you can't stand graphic violence and high body counts pass on this story; rape and torture are the staples here. If you can get past the gore there is a strong plot with many twists, double backs and surprises. If the editing was not so poor it would be a 5.0.
