    A serial killer is on the loose, and it’s up to FBI agents Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock to bring him down. They soon discover the killer has blood ties to an infamous and now long-dead monster. Savich and Sherlock are joined by agents Lucy Carlyle and Cooper McKnight, and the chase is on. At the same time, Agent Lucy Carlyle learns from her dying father that her grandfather didn’t simply walk away from his family twenty-two years ago: he was, in fact, murdered by his wife, Lucy’s grandmother.

    Jacquelyn Thomas says: "Story good, female reader almost ruined it."

    I found it very hard to care about the first plot, the others were harder to concentrate on with all of the flip flopping. I couldn't wait for this book to end!

    The amusing little inborn device known as the biological clock tolls for three women; two of them heed its compelling tones, while the third tries to ignore them.

    Story

    I don't know if it is just me or just my opinion but I hated the first and third characters and their stupidity. I guess, though, that that is what makes them real. I Love Jane Green and I always relate to the stories but I guess, in this case, I related more to Maeve than Julia or Sam.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    I loved the fact that the different women read the different points of view. This was great. I had already read the book and seen the movie but I still really enjoyed listening to this book on audible.

    On a rainy Southern night, Jade Sperry endured a young woman's worst nightmare at the hands of three local hell-raisers. Robbed of her youthful ideals and at the center of scandal and tragedy, Jade ran as far and as fast as she could. But she never forgot the sleepy "company town" where every man, woman, and child was dependent on one wealthy family.

    Story

    I didn't like the narrator reading the female voices. It was ok when it was the main characters thoughts, but when she talked I hated her voice from him reading it.

    Also, I wanted to strangle the main character several times. I never skip ahead on audio books and read every kind of genre, but on this one I had to skip ahead because I was so frustrated and wanted to know what happened without quitting the book altogether. This was not my favorite book.
