Framing the Dialogue

True Evil

So what would you expect of a book titled True Evil with a subtitle of “True evil has a face you know and a voice you trust?”  Maybe Amityville Horror meets Jaws with a little Bad Seed and The Omen.  That’s sort of what I expected, but what I got was a fairly good murder mystery, but not much in the way of a “true evil” the way I would expect.  Any murder is evil, but I expected more sinister and dark.  Author Greg Iles provided a stirring murder plot, though there was not much mystery after a while.  It was pretty much reading to see how far they’d get and which characters would die.  The murder weapon, however, is rather unique.
