The grossest murder mystery that I have ever read

Up front, as a lifelong resident of the Cedar Rapids area, I have a predilection for the books by Ed Gorman as I enjoy reading about places I encounter on a regular basis. However, in this case that tendency could not overcome the difficulties that I had reading the book. The criminal is a really bad one and his killings are among the cruelest. In the last part of the book, I simply could not read large sections at a time. Ordinarily when I get towards the end I move through to completion but the events were so gross that I could not read much more than 20 pages at a sitting.
Former F. B. I. agent and profiler Robert Payne is an interesting character but he lacks some skills as a field agent, walking into more than one trap. The action is all in a small Iowa town that was once a close-knit community but now is a bedroom town where many of the people commute to a large city and really do not have the deep community roots that people used to have.
The action is gross and very disturbing, young girls are tortured and very brutally murdered by the two-legged beast that Robert Payne is stalking. With all of my reading of history, I am hardened to such stuff, but even I was overwhelmed at times.
