John is a small town reporter who has just been given the chance of a lifetime. The notorious serial killer, Taylor the Tailor, has requested him personally to write her life story. The catch is, John has only three days before Taylor is to be electrocuted to interview her.
During those three days, John unravels a story like no other. Overwhelmed in just the first interview, John turns to his young assistant Lauren for help. Lauren readily agrees and heads to Taylor's hometown to come up with cold hard facts to help make Taylor's story a credible one.
However, both Lauren and John quickly realize that Taylor's tale may not be that easy to prove. Although both of them are skeptics at heart, they are finding out that Taylor's story is not an easy one to understand or believe. Especially with its supernatural undertones.
John's interviews start off with Taylor's childhood. To his horror, John realizes that Taylor had begun to kill as early as the age of four with her first victim being her father. As Taylor grows up, her list of victims increases as her skills for being "The Tailor" sharpen.
Tim is Taylor's brother who had been institutionalized at a very young age; upon being released, Tim had changed his name so as not to be connected with Taylor in any fashion. Unfortunately, due to Taylor's impending doom, Tim finds himself thrown back into Taylor's world.
Tim and Lauren team up to try and put a stop to Taylor's evil once and for all. Yet, all of them question why Taylor wants her story to be told now? Is it to seek redemption for all the bad deeds she has done, knowing her time is limited? Maybe, it is to brag to the world how much she got away with and how she did it? Or, is it something so much darker that none of them will find out until the third day, at the stroke of midnight?

John, a small town reporter, just got the chance of a lifetime. Taylor the Tailor, a young female serial killer, has asked him to write her life story. John becomes a little worried, he only has 3 days to interview her before her execution. Within moments of his interview with Tailor, he realizes that this story may be more than he ever bargained for. He decides to promote his assistant, Lauren, to co-writer and to also help him look for the facts. Just when he thinks things couldn't get any stranger, things take a turn to pure insane. Being the skeptic he is, he has no clue how he is going to publish this book and anyone actually believe it is real. As the interview progresses, things are starting to check out on Lauren's side concerning dates, times, and strange "accidents" that can not be explained. From what he can tell, Taylor has been telling him the truth about her victims, but if she is tell the truth about that, can everything she is telling him be true? John keeps asking why Taylor chose him to write her story, which she stresses that all that needs to be known will be told and understood when the time is right. Taylor has freaked John out to the point that he doesn't know if he can continue the interview, but has to know how the story ends. The question is, will he be prepared for what the end holds?
The book is full of twist and turns. The author used lots of imagination on this storyline and made sure that everything matched up and was explained. I do have to say, I did figure out part of the twist at the end, but the author made sure to add a little extra for those that may have thought they had it all figured out. Yes, she got me too.
There were several editing issues in this book. I did have a pdf copy, so I am not sure if they are present in the actual book. If they are, I can say that it did slow down the flow of the book for me, but not to the point where I couldn't enjoy the story.
I am a true horror and suspense fan, if you are too, I recommend you check out this book. Be advised, due to some of the content and situations in the book, I would recommend it as an adult read or for a mature audience.
