The early days of marriage, young children, shaky foundations, isolated locations, a love of reading but limited choices. Whatever, you paint the picture. I remember reading a book and attempting to cook dinner at the same time. Suddenly I became aware that my husband was in the kitchen and the potatoes were burning. This book that I read is a mass market pap Reading this took me back to the days of my youth.
That aside, honestly, when given a choice, I cannot see myself picking this one up. Still there is a good story here and even though it took me a while to warm up to the protagonist, the game was definitely afoot.
Ricky, a psychoanalyst, is given fifteen days to identify his stalker or kill himself. The stakes are high and measured in human lives. If you think this is a hoax or a joke stay tuned and allow Katzenbach to convince you otherwise. Honestly for me, the writing was something of a workout. Too many words became a recurring refrain within the confines of my read.
Still a picture was indeed painted and I became invested in the outcome. The story took over and I rode out the waves. Words and all. Find yourself a comfy perch and settle in. You are going to be a while. It was an enjoyable ride.

I never heard of this author prior reading this novel but it was a birthday present and the premise looked really interesting: a psychopath who calls himself Rumpelstiltskin, threats doctor Frederick Starks saying that he has to figure out his identity in 15 days or he will kill somebody from the doctor's family. The only way to stop Rumpelstiltskin from killing is to win the game or that the doctor commits suicide.
It was a great read. The book is fast paced with lots of mysteries and nice plot twists that kept me reading non stop, towards the half it slows down a little bit but luckily Katzenbach quickly picks up the frantic rhythm of the first chapters reaching a very good ending. Even though I sort of figured out who Rumpelstiltskin was before finishing, it didn't stopped me from enjoying this book because what really interested me was to know if the doctor could survive this wicked game.
Another thing I really liked is how the author describes the psyche of the different characters and the deeper implications of the game planned by Rumpelstiltskin, also the villain was great because of his determination to destroy doctor Starks's life. With this kind of books I always have the concern that the ending can be stupid or far fetched, fortunately this wasn't the case. Without being a mind-blowing ending at least for me I found it to be satisfactory and it wrapped up the book perfectly.
So, if you're looking for a fast and exciting psychological thriller this book can be good for you. I breezed through the second half desperate to know how the story would end and it didn't disappoint me. I'll definitely read more books by this author in the future. View all 7 comments.

I was at an airport and wanted to read something less tiresome than the usual newspapers and magazines. Before I finished the first sentence, I expected to leave this novel behind on the plane with the plastic headphones and Sky Mall catalog, never to be seen again. Yet Katzenbach won me over and I found myself not only enjoying the story but trying to cast the movie this novel is so clearly Why the hell did I read this again?
Yet Katzenbach won me over and I found myself not only enjoying the story but trying to cast the movie this novel is so clearly asking to become.
I figured out the identity of the bad guy easily enough but it did not prevent me from giving this a full and attentive read. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to write genre suspense novels. I scanned read through all the book. It's supposed to be a thriller, but doesn't have any kind of thrill. The author was more concentrated falling in love with the main character rather than focusing on creating a good thriller plot. It's this kinda of best seller that if you don't read them you save time.
And what's up with his thousands of analogies and literature quotations that just don't fit? I felt like the author just wanted to show that he knew stuff. A total mess
