A sociopath kills a young boy, a quiet teen, and then an entire family before turning his attention upon Pavel Trusnik, an elderly shut-in from across the street.
Loneliness can drive a normal man to madness, and Pavel Trusnik is not a normal man. After committing a crime that leaves him shunned and isolated, Pavel has only the fading memories of his tragically flawed life, and his one great love. When the violent sociopath sets his murderous desires upon Pavel, only an ancient order that knows Pavel’s secrets can intervene. But for the isolated old man, the vicious intruder is the only company he has had in decades…
The Puppet Maker’s Bones, what can I say about this engrossing page turner? The story was unique and original. It was smoothly written with a consistent style. To be honest, I had not expected this novel to be such an interesting read.
