The second book in the groundbreaking, best-selling trilogy, from the creator of the CSI franchise.
Steve Dark was once a lost soul, torn between his family and his one-of-a-kind talent for hunting and catching serial killers-especially those so-called "level 26" killers whose depravity exceeds law enforcement's official scale of evil. In his reluctant pursuit of justice Dark once crossed the ultimate line, a line that might cause a lesser man to lose himself completely.
Not Dark. When the world took everything from him, when it destroyed the very thing Dark once lived for, it brought a moment of clarity that few before him have witnessed, and sparked a transformation that, several years later, is only just complete.
Dark is now a man on a mission. A mission that no longer requires law enforcement support. A mission unbound by authorities, moral or otherwise, and supported by a mysterious benefactor with unknown goals of her own. A mission that, at long last, allows him to embrace his destiny. Dark is finally ready- ready to take justice to the next level.

I'd been waiting for Mr Zuiker's new novel. It was worth the wait. Both the first novel, Level 26 and Dark Prophecy offer a totally new approach because they have on-line visuals. So it was watching a good movie as well as listening to a good book. Both are good thrillers, although, this story seemed toned down from the first. I thought the narrators in both books were excellent. I'll be waiting for Mr Zuiker's next book.
This book had me from the start. The author can really build up the suspense. The one draw back is the switch in narrator. The first book Level 26 was read by John Glover and he really added a "creepyness" than made it hard to stop listening. If they had brought Mr. Glover back it would have made this book perfect. But even still it is well worth the money
This book reminds me of watching S. Darko. After watching Donnie Darko, I was so excited for the sequel, and just like this book it tried to use the exact formula from the first and failed utterly and entirely. Yes, the book is able to be listened to, but I would would not recommend listening to it.
