Ryne Douglas Pearson has been compared to both Thomas Harris and James Patterson. In Top Ten he delves into the heart and mind of a tormented man who becomes the terrifying killer known as Michaelangelo. Michaelangelo believes himself to be an artist of unparalleled vision. He stages elaborate murders and sends pictures of his “work” to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. During an attack at a post office, he sees that he is number ten on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted poster. Enraged, he decides to take his “art” in a new direction. He will become number one by killing everyone else on the list. When up-and-coming FBI agent Ariel Grace is assigned to the task force, she discovers that number five is actually another agent under deep cover. Now Ariel finds herself in a desperate race to find one of her own before Michaelangelo does. Ryne Douglas Pearson’s Top Ten is a look at both the madness that produces human monsters and the dedication of those determined to stop them. George Guidall’s chilling narration pulls the listener right into the middle of this suspense filled non-stop tour de force.

    " Twain's stories were my favorite, and this CD introduced me to Ambrose Bierce. I also enjoyed these stories. Stephen Crane I can take or leave, however. I might have left Jack London's too but only because he is best read in novels you'd like to cozy up next to a fire & read. "

    " Mark Twain's stories were thoroughly entertaining. Stephen Crane's were not. "

    " Great classic stories. Fun to hear. "

    " I didn't particularly enjoy very many of the stories in this book. It was helpful to learn about some of the authors and the ones I would like to read more. By the time I reached the end, I couldn't even listen to the stories by Jack Frost as I was so done with this book. "

    " My favorite were the Ambrose Bierce and Jack London selections. Least favorite were the Stephen Crane. "

    " This may be cheating, but I'm counting this even though I "read" it on audio-book. 4 stories by Mark Twain & 2 by Stephen Crane. The Crane stories seemed weak when read aloud. The two stories each by Ambrose Bierce and Jack London were brutal and riveting. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sam | 10/19/2008

    " Paint-by-numbers "female cop chases serial killer" book, so close to Silence of the Lambs it's kind of ridiculous. Weak characters, a nonsensical story-line, and a climax that did nothing for me. Pass. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessi | 9/10/2007

    " This was a fun read. It's like watching a long episode of CSI, with some of the most inventive death scenes ever imagined. It was hard to take seriously at times, but still--pure entertainment. "
