Publisher's Summary

Sometimes the cravings just take over.

Jimmie Putnam is an ordinary man by any measure. By day, he works as a law clerk. At night, when he can't fight the cravings, he becomes a collector. He takes great care of his human things; buying them cherry lipstick and reading to them from his journal. When they've been on their best behavior, he even takes them out of his freezers...

Sometimes the need is just too deep.

Florel Ross has been mostly invisible since the death of her twin, who died 20 years ago at the hands of a serial killer. Obsessed with justice, Florel is willing to risk anything for the answers she craves: What goes on in the mind of a serial killer?

When the two yearnings collide, will it be justice or just things?

Jimmie gets creepier!!

Do you like being inside the minds of the sick and twisted? Then Erin Lee wrote a perfect book for you with Just Things! I can't even explain how fun this book was to read... I know, I sound totally sick! This is just utterly fascinating to me! I can't wait to break into the second book!

We meet Jimmie... we get to go through his diary and learn all about his depravity through his own eyes. His obsession with things and why he's so attached to some and why he still keeps his others. We also meet Florel Ross, a detective who is just as obsessed as Jimmie... only she's obsessed with him, not his things.

Oh my word... hearing Michael Goldsmith narrate for Jimmie was perfection! I can't even explain how perfectly Goldsmith portrayed what I had in my head for Jimmie! It was creepy but it pulled you in! Fantastic audiobook!!

A Better Read than listen

The story started out fairly well, but was meted out clumsily. While the killer was fleshed out fairly well, the detective never quite held up. The plot was straightforward with little to no finesse, but it did keep me going until the end.
The narrator for the audiobook was a perfect match for the killer, but changed nothing for the female detective, so I would often be a minute or two into a new chapter before I realized we had switched characters, which led to frustration on my part.
the ending, while revelatory, rushed to a close so quickly I thought I had missed a chapter. while the book was an acceptable addition to the serial killer genre, it needed some work before publication.
