Free book (Nook)[Kindle-ended] - The Impaler [Mystery/Thriller]

The Impaler, a serial killer FBI thriller by Gregory Funaro, is a free pre-order in the Kindle store, courtesy of publisher Kensington's imprint Pinnacle.

Now showing as available to Canadians.

Description
A Killer Without A Conscience
The crimes are barbaric. The victims are found in desolate rural areas, naked and impaled on long wooden stakes. There are no clues. No DNA evidence. Just a message, etched over and over again on one broken body: "I have returned."


Without Control
FBI Agent Sam Markham's last investigation ended with a serial killer's death and Sam's promotion. But back then, Sam had luck on his side. This time, the murderer's methods are evolving too fast, his bloodlust growing too swiftly. This time, no one is safe.


Without Limits
With each mutilated body, new depths to The Impaler's brutality are revealed. And as the clues finally slip into place, Sam will discover how easy it is to cross the line from hunter--to hunted. . .

Good book and great read! I liked this one even better than his first book The Sculptor. Very sick bad guy and an a good hearted protagonist. If you like crime thrillers check it out.

Didn't last long this one - but managed to snag it. My to be read list grows by the day.

Yeah really. Would have thought it would have lasted longer, but no such luck.
It was already gone before I got the chance to check it out yesterday too.

Full diclosure I won an advance copy of this in a Goodreads giveaway! I read Funaro's first book The Sculptor and really liked it. Just got this book in and it was signed by the author too!
The Impaler is the second book from Gregory Funaro and it features FBI agent and profiler Sam Markham. It is a truly fast paced but very convoluted novel and there are lots of twists and turns that keep you reading. I enjoyed the book but I have to tell you it is gory. The killer tortures and literally impales his victims (Like Vlad the Impaler). Funaro’s descriptions are eerily detailed, grim, and seem very realistic.
The characters are complex and believable, they don’t go running around doing things that make you scratch your head and say, “that would never happen.” You care for them, and you may even start to understand the killer in a weird way too. (Note I didn’t say sympathize, he is far too sick for that.)
The book starts with the torture and murder of a lawyer in North Carolina and FBI Supervisory Special Agent Sam Markham, a widower, whose wife’s killer is about to be executed, and he has been promoted to the Behavioral Analysis unit in Quantico, Virginia. He is sent to North Carolina to investigate three murders connected by their gruesome method but seemingly nothing else. From there all I can say is hang on because the ride is going to get very bumpy. You will have to read it yourself.
I liked Funero’s first book and recommend it but The Impaler is an improvement in every way. This author has topped his first book and I can’t wait to read the next one.

Please tell me it gets better

I'm six chapters in, and so far, it just reads like a retread of Thomas Harris' Red Dragon, with a simple change to character names and method of murder. Let me know whether I should spend any more time on this...
