Richard was a peeping tom in Brents neighborhood when Brent was 16. Whenever he would spy on someone he would leave an empty corncob behind and also mess with the property in other ways, such as moving lawn furniture and folding any clothes that were left out to dry, just so they would know he was there. On multiple occasions Brent and his friends attempted to catch him, but Cob always got away.
As Cob got older he started increasing his crimes, instead of just watching people through their windows, he would break into their houses while they were gone, he would never steal anything big, he would just keep a souvenir, and after that got old he started to kidnap and kill his victims.
This was an interesting book, I enjoyed the way it was told by switching viewpoints throughout so you would know what was going on in the investigators minds, as well as in the killers mind. It was very interesting and a great page turner, I always had to know what was going to happen next.
It was well written for the most part, there were a few mistakes with grammar, and the scenes where Cob was either abducting or killing were repetitive, as he used the same method every time. While that works in tv shows and movies, it is a bit annoying in a book, as you feel like you are rereading the same material will slight changes every time it happens.
Overall it was a good, well written book, the problems I had with it are minor and it was an entertaining read. I would recommend it, but keep in mind it is intended for more mature audiences. I give it 4 out of 4 stars.
