That’s precisely what John Luther is, among other things; the man is smart, prone to obsession, and even dangerous if you meet him and he’s got something to settle with you.

Even though Luther has an intense personality, his clearance rate is so exceptional that it demands respect. While he expects a lot out of his friends and his colleagues, anyone that shows him true loyalty will never have a reason to say anything against his character. However, John Luther is not without his demons. There are even rumors about this side of him, and the rumors are right.

    I too have found on Hulu, The Sister, I am watching it now. I had never heard of writer, I find him to be very good. I looked him up to see if he was Alex Cross under a different name due to the fact a writer can only publish so many books in a year that the use other names to publish under. I do intend to read his books.
