Charles Runyon was a top notch writer who wrote masterpiece after masterpiece. Why he is not more well-known is a mystery. "The Anatomy of Violence" is an amazing work that starts off a little slow but builds to a fiery climax. In a small town controlled by one man's iron will, beauty queens are crowned once a year. Eileen is raped and murdered that night. A year later it's Laurie's turn, and, although she too is left for dead, she survives, determined to expose the man who did this even if no one else in this backwards town gives a damn. Told in the first person, Laurie's experiences are set out as the deadly game of cat and mouse begins. Reminiscent of Runyon's "The Prettiest Girl I Ever Killed," there are brief glimpses from the rapist's point of view. This is a well -written, well-paced crime novel and is without question a five-star read. ( )
