    Young detective Anna Travis has been assigned to her first murder case, and it couldn't be a more horrific set of killings. They began eight years earlier; now the body count is up to six. After another body is found, Anna stumbles on a vital piece of evidence which links one man to the killings. However, he's a household name, a much-loved actor, and an arrest would create a media frenzy. And, if he was found to be the wrong man, his career would be finished, as well as Anna's.

    "Interesting but Anna was irritatingly immature."

    Story

    I enjoyed the book but was irritated by Anna Travis more than in other books with her character in. Really, she is meant to be a fairly experienced officer by now not some emotional, naive, love sick teenager.
    While the story line was predictable I did enjoy listening and will listen to more in the series.

    The Past...Caught behind the lines of Hitler’s Final Solution, Saul Laski is one of the multitudes destined to die in the notorious Chelmno extermination camp. Until he rises to meet his fate and finds himself face-to-face with an evil far older, and far greater, than the Nazis themselves...

    Story

    Interesting, and scary concept if it were true! I enjoyed this book although did find a few of the descriptive paragraphs a bit long winded.
    Once I got used to it the narratives from different characters perspectives was an interesting aspect although it did then result in some pretty much word for word repetition making me think I'd hit the back button or a section had downloaded twice.
    A lot of people say how scary the book is - well if it were a true scenario then yes, very scary. Maybe I've read too many horror / monster books and am not easily impressed.
    Just when it seemed the story was coming to a conclusion there would be another twist and off it would go again - much to my pleasure I have to say.
    I would recommend this if your looking for a long but interesting story and like monster / zombie / vampire type stories.
    Yes there are descriptions of nazis war camps, death trains and related atrocities.
    Yes some of the characters are racist.
    The book does not in anyway condone those attitudes or behaviours but it could be hard reading / listening for some people.

    Special Agent Maggie O'Dell has seen a lot in her career, and amidst the killers, psychos and criminals she has hunted, she’s delved deep into the darkest, most shockingly evil recesses of the human mind. But when a cool box filled with body parts washes up on the shore of Florida’s Pensacola Beach, even Maggie isn’t prepared for what she is about to get into.

    Story

    I enjoyed the story but it seemed to be rushed towards the end, as if the author was in a hurry to finish it and start something else. Shortly after I listened to this I listened to Hotwire and found the same rushed ending. Presumably the author feels this adds to the story and provides a climatic end but as I'd worked out who did what etc already for me it just seemed like the author wanted to finish and move on.
