The Cutting Edge is the latest endeavor by Darcia Helle in her vast array of growing novels offered up for her avid fans consumption I must admit that this is the first of her books which I have read and for the most part found myself wonderfully entertained With the focus of The Cutting Edge centering on a serial killer and a common hairdresser's obsession with blood the content falls in line with my book Duncan's Diary Maybe all of us crazy people flock to the same party who knows I have to admit I did find it hard to emotionally relate to the characters though Darcia's writing style at least in this novel reminded me of a newspaper article stating the details without giving me the connection I needed to find myself lost in her words I kept thinking of the old version of Dragnet where the main line Just the facts rings true over and over again I think she would be better served tying her readers to the storyline by caging us in much in the same way her crazy characters fantasize about death That being said she is obviously very talented and the book kept me engaged throughout the roller coaster ride of insanitySkye Summers is a common hairstylist working in a local salon in a small town She knows most of her clientele and can't even escape to the park without running into people she has some form of connection with through her occupation She is married to a hunk of a man who spends an ample amount of time pleasing her and deals with the ups and downs of a child he had before they became a couple I can relate to the insanity of ex wives and had no problems understanding the issues they bring to the tableAll of the stress begins to wear on Skye and she finds herself fantasizing about chopping up her customers as she is cutting their hair Lopping off an ear lobe or slicing and dicing their skulls all while she is meticulously coloring some poor middle aged woman's flowing mop The ins and outs of the customers gives us an intriguing view of how crazy it is for a hairdresser to keep all of the multiple personalities straight I have no idea if Darcia Helle was a stylist in a previous life but she easily paints a realistic picture of what the life might actually be likeAs Skye falls deeper into her fantasy of murder the reality of death opens up as a real life serial killer begins stalking their small community Instead of finding herself appalled Skye on some level commiserates with the murderer as she also harbors feelings of butchering many of the women she deals with every single day When fantasy and reality come together Skye finds herself confronted with her imagination and the real life serial killer hits home in her personal life in ways she never imagined The real uestion is how Skye will react when given the opportunity to live out her wildest dreamsI don't want to give away too much of the books climactic ending but I again have to emphasize how much I enjoyed the parallel of fiction versus fantasy We all have dark thoughts but when it comes down to the final minute how many of us are really capable of living out the insanity that flitters through our minds Most of us will never know the answer to that uestion but for better or worse Skye will have to make her choice
