Very good writing, but I am not the audience and the vivid pictures are not ones I want in my mind. I stopped reading early, but clearly well written.

I received this book from LibraryThing. It started right from page one with the action. It kept your interest. It was not just killing for the killing, he had a purpose to why he killed the victims. Go out and read it.

I really enjoyed this new book! It had bloody details, dry humor as well as relatable human interactions, minus the hammer of course... hopefully. This is my fourth Brabander book and I look forward to see what he comes up with next.

I loved this story! Granted, I have a weird sense of humor and enjoy horror and gore but this also had a few comments to make about society and justice. I'm going to see if the author has other books available...

I found this book very entertaining. I liked how Martin didn't kill just for the hell of it. He had his reasons, helping the victims by killing their abusers. As another reviewer noted, it's like American Psycho. If you liked the movie and/or book, you should like this novella.

Interesting story that is short and a very quick read. The story has a psychological element that gives an eerie, creepy feeling that seems amost real. While I enjoyed the book, it became a bit disjointed at times.

I cannot remember any time where I finished a book in one sitting. This book is kind of a, American Psycho meets Dexter. And since I really enjoyed both books this was really fun book to read that I was unable to put down at all.

An enjoyable book about a serial killer who justifies his kills by categorizing them - bullies, users and a few others.
Typical of a sociopath he starts on animals and hones his skill in using a hammer as his weapon of choice. You meet the people he comes in contact with and how or why he chooses his victims. There is a moral to the book and karma plays a big role. It's my first book by Todd Brabander and I look forward to reading his other books.

I thought this was a great read. The story brought back memories of long ago injustices that needed to be addressed. It was well written and a fast read, but it ended too soon. It should become a classic.

Great book, although a fast read! Just when I was getting to know Martin, the book ended! I want more!!! Although this is a book about a serial killer, it contains humor and life conflicts! I hope Mr. Brabander plans to explore Martin in a little more depth in the future! I would love to read a novel where the main character is someone like Martin, although what is wrong with this picture? Am I asking to read more about a killer? Any WHO!! Great read, although a little short.
