John Wayne Cleaver saved his town from a murderer even more appalling than the serial killers he obsessively studies. But it turns out even demons have friends, and the disappearance of one has brought another to Clayton County. No one in Clayton is safe unless John can vanquish two nightmarish adversaries: the unknown demon he must hunt and the inner demon he can never escape.

I have very mixed feelings about this story, parts of it are very well done. The author’s use of subdued humor in John’s struggle to be normal is outstanding. The concept of a budding sociopath trying to blend in is fascinating. Unfortunately, the author also tends to go overboard on the “gross-out” aspects giving me a few too many yucky moments. Also, I have never felt totally at peace with the supernatural aspect of the story, feeling this is a bit of a cop out on the author‘s part.. I will eventually read the final book in the trilogy as overall these stories are very clever and intriguing, and I can’t help but picture a young Dexter and wondering where John’s urges will take him.

The first novel was good, and I expected to enjoy this one as well, but .... no. He lost me when he had John kill the cat.

A extremely good sequel to I Am Not A Serial Killer. Mr. Monster exceeds the first novel and should be an enjoyable read for anyone who can handle things a wee bit disturbing...

I highly recommend this series. Wells' writing is tight and concise, and the plot is gripping; it's not what you expect. This book, in particular, managed to take me completely--and wonderfully--by surprise.
