The Eye by Bill Pronzini & John Lutz

The Eye: A Novel of SuspenseThe Eye: A Novel of Suspense by Bill Pronzini
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Very good detective suspense novel situated in New York. Unlike other novels we know the identity of the killer from the start, and the suspense is created by the chase to find him before the body count gets to high. The killer Lewis Collier is obviously a crazy who believes he is acting out Gods justice and cannot be caught. He spys on his victims from the other side of the Hudson River using his telescope "the eye of God". The authors flip from one character to another as they build the story, but cleverly tell you each time they change character so it is easy to keep track. E.L. Oxman is the main detective assigned to solve the case. Can he find the killer before he himself is in danger?
