He mutilates his victims. Slices their throats. And carves an X into their flesh. Five years ago, he claimed the lives of six women. Then the killings abruptly stopped - no one knows why. Ex-homicide detective Frank Quinn remembers. Which is why he's shocked to see one of the dead women in his office. Actually, she's the identical twin of the last victim, and she wants Quinn to find her sister's murderer. But when the cold case heats up, it attracts the media spotlight - and suddenly the killings start again...

    " Love the Frank Quinn series. Doesn't disappoint "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill | 1/15/2014

    " John Lutz continues his brilliant Frank Quinn series with a thriller that has the reader guessing why the Carver, after five years of inactivity, has started killing again and whether Quinn's partner, Pearl, will become his latest victim. I had a difficult time finding a place to stop as the action just keeps flowing from chapter to chapter. Mister X is a satisfying read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 dawn | 1/3/2014

    " I read another John Lutz book and I liked it better but he is definitley an author that I know I will enjoy his books but I always seem to forget about him. As usual, this was dark but I love the dymanic between the 3 leads. The plot was entertaining so I would always rec a Lutz book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tanya Patrice | 1/1/2014

    " Great mystery. The plot twists were superb and kept me interested and guessing all the way to the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheri S. | 12/26/2013

    " This mystery/thriller was good, but wasn't a fantastic read for me. I liked the characters and the premise of the story, but I felt the plot was strung out too long; it could've been shorter in length! Some of the book was predictable, some of it was a surprise and I really didn't care for the twist in the end! Overall, not a terrible book, but I actually enjoyed it the most because of the fact that it was my first e-book (I am completely in love with my new Sony e-reader!!)! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kasandra | 12/25/2013

    " Wanted a quick thriller to read while waiting in line today. This was awful (non-believable story/plot, crappy dialogue, convoluted ending that was such b.s. I almost threw the book on the floor in disgust). Total waste of reading time. Won't be reading this guy again, that's for sure. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy Pappenhagen | 12/23/2013

    " Great book. Not expecting the ending...something similar perhaps, but not that! Cannot wait for the sequel.... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jean Christofferson | 11/7/2013

    " The storyline is imaginative and the characters are interesting, but there are too much going on and the plot gets difficult to follow near the end. Could have been better if a few of the characters were eliminated. Why did we need the storyline about Pearl getting engaged to Yancy? We didn't. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carolyn | 9/28/2013

    " I get the feeling Lutz has some issues with women. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tom Mueller | 9/18/2013

    " Boy meets girl, kills girl, good guys kill bad guy (along with one good girl). We're left with a cliffhanger though; did they really kill the 'right' bad guy? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 9/9/2013

    " This book was really good. There was lots of twists and turns to keep you guessing. I am interested in reading more from the Frank Quinn series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 3/21/2013

    " Took me a little bit to get going in this book. I prefer his "Night" books better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elliott Jenkins | 2/4/2013

    " Wow! This really kept me guessing! It can be pretty gruesome at times, but it adds to the story, not just there for shock. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 12/6/2012

    " I liked this book a lot. It was a good mystery. I was really thrown by the twist at the end. Didn't see that one coming. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Blakely | 10/30/2012

    " Better have a strong stomach to read but man it sure is good and scary!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nora aka Diva | 10/29/2012

    " Quite the suspense/thriller! Enough twists and turns to make a person dizzy but in a good way. Leaves you wondering throughout the entire novel. Worth reading! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katherine Coble | 9/25/2012

    " Your typical serial killer thriller. Good for passing the time in airports, waiting rooms, etc. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 7/4/2012

    " every book he writes is good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 5/30/2012

    " This one was CREEPY. Can't wait for the next !! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Luann | 5/1/2012

    " I must say, this was not quite as good as the previous Frank Quinn mysteries. I don't think he did as good of a job this time wrapping it up at the end. It left me with more questions about the killer - but maybe that was Lutz's goal - either way, I was unhappy with the ending. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Larry | 7/12/2011

    " I usually enjoy John Lutz's books, but this one was ... tedious, somehow. I couldn't care about the characters, felt no suspense. It just missed the mark for me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nicole Fall | 5/13/2011

    " This book was not a book that I couldn't wait to pick back up. The characters were easy to figure out and predict as well as the ending. There was too much 'decorative' writing rather than 'meat and bones' to the book. However, I will consider reading another book from this author again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynn Mullican | 5/3/2011

    " I haven't read any of the other Frank Quinn books, but I'll be sure to read more after this one. It was a great book with a twist of an ending. I thoroughly enjoyed and look forward to read more of his material. Thumbs up! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenn | 12/14/2010

    " I seem to be reading quite a few cliffhangers lately. However, Lutz has written a winner once again! His characters are so well loved in this series. I can't wait for his next one, and it should be out some time this year. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jaime | 11/9/2010

    " a very entertaining read...Lutz knows how to keep the suspense going and put a twist on his work. "
