Summary
Love Is Red is the first book in a stunning new trilogy. Panic has seized New York City. Someone is brutally murdering women, a killer the media dubs the "Sickle Man" thanks to the way he disfigures his victims. People think he's the next son of Sam, but because the Sickle Man's viscerally seductive voice forms one strand of Love Is Red, we know how he thinks and how he feels . . . and that the city has never seen anything like him. Taking more than just his victims lives, the Sickle Man kills to harvest the precious hues one carries within her, which only he can see. Each death brings him closer to capturing the one color, and the one woman, that he must possess at any cost. While the hunt for the Sickle Man escalates, Katherine Emerson is preoccupied with finding The One.�Could he be the handsome and personable David, or the alluring yet aloof Sael? But how well does she really know these men? And why is she suddenly haunted by increasingly disturbing visions? Katherine may not be aware of the power she possesses, but her moment of awakening is here. What begins as an exhilarating novel of suspense, of the hunter and the hunted, unfolds into a blazingly intense epic of obsession and control, desire and fate. As Sophie Jaff's hypnotic narrative twists and turns, we learn we are not at the mercy of a madman, but of great, much more dangerous forces than we could possibly imagine.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "New York City is terrorized by a serial killer who gains entry into young women's apartments. The reader knows, from the first chapters, written in second person (You pick her up in a bar), that the killer is, to say the least, a skilled pickup artist who finds women not only in bars but also at art exhibits and the New York Public Library. He also writes in extremely purple prose. The point of view here changes from the killer to Katherine, an aspiring writer currently working as an office temp. Katherine, who speaks in the first person, has two new boyfriends, one pretty sketchy, the other very charming. The reader suspects long, long before Katherine does that one of these guys is the serial killer. The excitement (and there's plenty of it) comes from the serial killer's creepy, second-person accounts of his moves and from watching the cat-and-mouse game with Katherine. This branches out into the supernatural toward the end and is projected as the first novel in The Nightsong Trilogy. More than a little derivative and a bit overwrought, but frightening all the same.--Fletcher, Connie Copyright 2010 Booklist"
