    (306)

    John works in his family's mortuary and has an obsession with serial killers. He wants to be a good person but fears he is a sociopath, and for years he has suppressed his dark side through a strict system of rules designed to mimic "normal" behavior. Then a demon begins stalking his small town and killing people one by one, and John is forced to give in to his darker nature in order to save them.

    G. Mott says: "Great, if visceral book, terrible narrator."
    "Great book, not great narration"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed the story, and think the plot was well written and the characters excellent. What keeps this from getting five stars from me is the narration by John Allen Nelson. While he has a decent voice for narration, he did not AT ALL fit with this story. The character is supposed to be a sociopath, devoid of emotion and empathy, and yet Nelson's voice for him sounded angry. He gave his words too much emphasis, and didn't even soften the phrases or words that should be softened. The way he stressed some things changed the meaning of sentences, and overall his tone was just not at all right for this storyline. I hope that Wells writes a sequel to this book, because it was really enjoyable - but I hope he finds a new narrator for the audiobook.
