Review by Library Journal (2009-08-01)

Zuiker, the creator of the television crime drama CSI, dubs this thrilling series debut the world's first "digi-novel". In an effort to inspire audiences not just to "read" the book but to "experience" it, the authors offer a unique, integrated mashup of both literary text and cinematic clips to tell the story of serial killer profiler and tracker Steve Dark. As the head of a highly classified governmental agency that hunts the world's most violent serial killers, Dark has the ability to assume the killers' mindset as he tracks them down and brings them to justice.

Readers are encouraged to visit a web site (www.level26.com) where they can watch supplementary video clips. The three-minute clips, while not essential to the story line, are of high quality and designed to engage readers further in the novel. This forward-thinking blend of text and video risks coming off as gimmicky, but readers will find the meat of the story intriguing enough to stand alone without the online content.

Verdict: Resembling the thrillers of Thomas Harris and Jeff Lindsay (see review on p. 69), this experimental crossover novel, coauthored with crime novelist Swierczynski (The Wheel Man), will attract a diverse following and could change the future of publishing with its interactive content.
