Literature: The Bride Collector
He loves them because they are beautiful. He kills them because he loves them.

The Bride Collector is a novel by Ted Dekker that was published April 2010.

The book opens in Denver, Colorado, after a serial killer the FBI dubs "The Bride Collector" killed his fifth victim. Special agent Brad Raines, the leader of the investigation, finds the killer's trademark a veil, and a note at the body. Hard-pressed for clues, he follows the lead to the Center for Wellness and Intelligence, a private home for incredibly brilliant mentally ill residents. There, he meets four residents who agree to assist him with the case. Raines is intrigued by one in particular- a schizophrenic girl named Paradise who is able to experience the victims' final moments. They bond working on the case. The killer picks up his pace, and things get personal and incredibly dangerous.
