"Alternates gristle and flab, romance and sexual pathology, all of it laid on with a heavy hand—except the killer's surgeries, which are gruesomely accomplished."
Short-story specialist Laird (Blue Collar, not reviewed) pads his way to novel length with the exploits, all too explicitly described, of a Chicago serial killer who first chloroforms his prey, pretty young gals, and then removes vital organs, presumably to sell on the black market to desperate souls in need of transplants.
