Finishing School - Max Allan Collins I don't know how he does it. I first ran across Collins reading his Nate Heller series. They were pretty good. Then I discovered the Quarry series; they were even better. Now I've found the Criminal minds series. I understand he writes a lot of books based on movies and TV series. It's my understand that his Saving Private Ryan was as good as the movie.

Short plot summary: serial kidnapper abducts blond female toddlers for his "family" but then has to kill them when they reach puberty. FBI and cops chase down the bad guy.

Definitely not for English grad students so attuned to post-modern lit that a declarative sentence seems simplistic. Little character development or social commentary. If you are looking for a solid story to pass the time, this will suit quite nicely.
