  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2021 February #2
    Theo Snyder was famous once. His documentary, The Basement, became a massive hit and brought all the fame he'd ever dreamed of having. Just as quickly, a scandal brought Theo to the bottom. Looking for a way to find his voice again, he decides to tell the story of the infamous Halo Killer, Jasper Ross-Johnson, a serial murderer facing life in prison. At first, Theo expects Jasper to cooperate, but the further Theo delves into the Halo Killer's past, more questions arise than answers. Why did Jasper fail to murder his last victim? Who was the woman seen on the beach the night he was captured? Reardon's mastery at weaving together the strands of a complex psychological thriller is palpable on every page. Theo's manic foray into Jasper's life and mind is described in disturbing detail, but this is not the typical murder mystery. Instead of focusing on the gruesome outcomes, Reardon brings forth Jasper's methods and mind-set, answering the question of why someone would commit such heinous acts. Fans of Gillian Flynn will jump at this one. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
