The author captivates all your senses from the get go. I felt I was in it.. The story and plot were not the typical thriller-mystery. Strong female characters, really kept me sucked in...LOVE IT.
This book started out a little slow but did pick up momentum and became riveting. Just about the time I thought the book a bit boring it took off. I enjoyed the rest of the story which was full of surprises.

Absolutely. Karen Slaughter is an amazing writer, and a fabulous story teller.
The complexity, and not knowing what would come next. And the way she built the character profiles.
I didn't realize this was a series so this is the first book I read, but I will go back and read them from the beginning.
This book was graphically intense, and some scenes were horrifying in detail, but it is also what made it such a great book. Not for young readers, or those who can't handle gory details of a sadistic mind. It scared me but I couldn't stop reading.
This story is good - not too many twists and turns, but there are many faces which allows for a lot of exposition. Switching between past and present is engaging and makes for good character development. It's a pretty violent story, so be aware of that, but overall very entertaining.
The actress who reads this books did a great job, too - there were no distractions from her voice or characters; she really did the story justice.
This is the first book I have heard by this author and I am going to find another one. This story kept me wanting to listen as much a possible. It was a darn shame I had to go to work....
Yes- it kept me on the edge of my seat and wanting more.
The violence is a bit extreme... the killer does do some very nasty things, so this book may not be for everyone.
I was very disappointed by the story...
Good transition from male to female voices
I would cut several scenes
Tell us about yourself! I am addicted to Audio Books I read them all the time in the car, doing dishes, ironing, What ever.
Have to pay attention details are somewhat gruesome but I love Bones and Kathy Reichs and Patricia Cornwell so that should tell you.
The story was worth listening to, but I got tired of the language and trashy parts. I fast forward to hear the end, because of the parts that had no relevance to the story.
