Sometimes, the cravings just take over.

Jimmie Putnam is an ordinary man by any measure. By day, he works as a law clerk. At night, when he can't fight the cravings, he becomes a collector. He takes great care of his human Things; buying them cherry lipstick and reading to them from his journal. When they've been on their best behavior, he even takes them out of his freezers...

Sometimes, the need is just too deep.

Florel Ross has been mostly invisible since the death of her twin, who died twenty years ago at the hands of a serial killer. Obsessed with justice, Florel is willing to risk anything for the answers she craves: What goes on in the mind of a serial killer?

When the two yearnings collide, will it be justice or just Things?

She bounced when she walked. It was like she was in her own world. If he hadn’t checked and seen for himself, he’d have been sure she wore earbuds in her ears. There was nothing, not even earrings. It was like she was dancing to music in her own head and it fascinated him.

He really didn’t like the idea of driving this far for groceries. But Jimmie had taken enough chances and he wasn’t about to get caught. No, he had to have her and getting caught wouldn’t be part of the plan.

Her smile was gigantic, one of the biggest he’d ever seen. When she looked at him, it made his stomach jump, something that rarely happened. It’s not that she looked at him for a long time, or that her look was anything special. There was just something about her. He wondered what Momma would think of her. Then he told himself it didn’t matter. He wasn’t required to answer to anyone. Besides, Momma would never meet her.  He had much better plans, and this time, to keep her. Maybe if he worked quickly she could be the first of his Things…

A dark, creepy and fantastic read. The story was well constructed and the author has such a way of writing that you want to keep turning the pages to discover what comes next. My only gripe is that to me at least, it felt like the story ended abruptly. I will read it again and if my opinion changes I'll update my review.
