The story of serial killer and torturer Gerald Ruhming – his current victim and how he came to be.

The subtitle suggests there may be more Gerald Ruhming stories coming. That might be too much of a good thing, but this one was good.

I’d never heard of ‘Jak Holding’ before reading this, but I’ll be looking for more. Correction is disturbing in content, but well written and intriguing. It’s the story of serial killer and torturer Gerald Ruhming – his current victim and how he came to be. There’s a mother-son relationship that has perhaps inevitable echoes of Psycho, which I wish the authors had done a little more work on. There are a few glitches here and there. But mostly, the characters are well realized, and the victim episodes are frighteningly realistic. Overall, well worth picking up if you’re looking for good writing, and don’t mind a healthy dose of darkness.
