Oh yes. 100% yes with no qualifications. This was written in a fast-paced, exciting manner punctuated with some particularly gruesome torture murders. This novel handles the parallel existence of the protagonist and the serial killer and then throws them together as they are drawn to each other so well. The dialogue rings true for all characters and the story is vastly dark and interesting.The means of murder is unique and alarmingly evil. The killer is a true psychopath believable and relentless in his uncontrollable desires. The book just leaps from one acton scene to another at a blistering pace, holding attention to the incredible ending.It is so very rewarding to be able to write a review with zero negatives; it is just that kind of perfect book.
More than any book in a long, long time. This book edges victims and the killer closer and closer together in an almost unbearable inevitability. You want to shout out to save the innocents. It all seems alarmingly real as you slip into the writer's work and the characters become real, human and so complex. The pace of the novel is fast and I like it. Each word moves you closer to the final confrontation with a roller coaster-like momentum.Finally, there are three significant characters in this book and they are fully developed as people and as persons caught in the web. These are real, people that you never lose interest and become emotionally engaged with.
I have never heard this narrator's work before. She does male and female voices exceptionally well with each voice seeming unique and ringing true. Christiana Traister has a naturally beautiful voice that makes the listening compelling. This is a real work of art in the world of Audible narration and worthly of the term performance.This is not some simple read-through, it is a live performance with perfect tones of weariness, anger, fear, etc. The narrator is spot on in each and every line. Of course, having a very well written plot that zooms along is a great basis for such an excellent performance.
Yes, unfortunately I do not have that kind of time block. You find yourself listening to extra chapters which is a way of saying that you don't want to put it down (shut it off). This book comes highly recommended in book format and in a variety of reviews. It is an excellent thriller.
