While deviant psychotherapeutic techniques can be fascinating regardless of plot or character development, this story is quite compelling. But what really makes it worthwhile is Huber's smooth and alluring narration. This book made me look for other books read by the same narrator.
I guessed who the killer was early on, which was disappointing. The book also has shades of misogyny which really bothered me. I won't go into detail because it might be a spoiler.
Occasionally it is fine when authors decide to narrate their own books, but there is a reason why they have professionals for this sort of thing. I wanted to listen to the whole story because it seemed like it would have been interesting, but I couldn't get past the first couple of chapters because of the narrator's voice.
While there are a few grisly scenes in McCammon's books I could do without, overall the whole series is excellent. It is such a pleasure to listen to a well-fleshed out plot and engaging characters while picking up quite a bit of history along the way. It is narrated beautifully, too.
