This report prepared by BETH ANDREWS



The premise of MUSE is intriguing,that of a woman in love with a successful author who is actually a seriel killer, but unfortunately very predictable. The back cover essentially tells you the entire story, even though the progress of the book tries to tell you otherwise. Much of the action is repetitive as is the storyline. The very ending, I must admit, was an incredible twist, but a little to easy for the author. I would recommend this book only if you had nothing else to read, and you were interested in a MISERY rip off.
