A thriller in the style of The Silence of the Lambs, The Lonely Mile is a well written and gripping story of a battle between a serial killer and the father of his latest victim.
Leverone’s style is not unlike that of Thomas Harris and the killer’s point of view is given as much air time as that of the victim. The combination makes for a very unnerving read and the urge to keep going until the end – regardless of what horrors may lay in store.
The character’s in The Lonely Mile are well drawn for the main part – my only complaint would be the victim comes over a teensy bit cliched in her girl next door persona, but it’s not so pronounced that it intrudes on the quality of the story as a whole.
The plot is strong with a sharp twist that is neatly delivered and believable.
I did find the end a little drawn out – but that should not be taken too personally,since I am a reader who once the climax of the story has been reached is often quite happy to leave things as they are.
If you’re looking for a good, solid read that will draw you in and hold you all the way through the story, you can’t go past The Lonely Mile
