Level 26: Dark Origins Level 26: Dark Origins by Anthony E. Zuiker


My rating: 3 of 5 stars
The creator of CSI writes a thriller so he can get away with things he can't do on TV. The idea is that there are 25 levels of serial killer, but now a Level 26 emerges. The crimes are pretty horrific and memorable, but the story is a cliche - the traumatized cop who's starting to rebuild his life comes out of retirement to find the one who got away. The writing is kind of clunky and repetitive, too.

It also claims to be the first "Digi-Novel." You can register at the book's website and see video that is meant to supplement the book. But the videos don't add anything. At the beginning, they actually say you don't need to watch the videos to enjoy the book. In fact, the videos seem a distraction and substitute central casting's ideas of the characters for the reader's.

I don't recommend this book, but I don't hate it. This is the review-equivalent of a shrug of the shoulders.

LOL. That's funny, though I'm not sure why.
