Publisher's Summary

A string of murders targeting effeminate gay men has the GLBTQ community of Chicago on alert, but budget cuts have left many precincts understaffed and overworked. Not to mention homophobia is alive and well within the law enforcement community, and little has been done to solve the mystery. When the FBI calls in Special Agent Todd Hutchinson and his team, the locals are glad to hand the case off. But Hutch finds a bigger mystery than anyone originally realized - 17 linked murders committed in several different jurisdictions. Hutch's clues lead him to Noah Walker.

Working on his PhD in forensic psychology, Noah has been obsessed with serial murders since he was a child. But coming to Hutch's attention as a suspect isn't a good way to start a relationship. Noah finds himself hunted, striking him off Hutch's suspect list but not off his radar. To catch the killer before anyone else falls victim, they'll have to work together, and quickly, to bring him to justice.

    Story
    "This book is just awful."
    Would you try another book from SJD Peterson and/or Rusty Topsfield?

    No I wouldn't from SJD Peterson. I found the prose to be one-dimentional and lacking imagination. The characters were written as lacking in any sense of style or verve. The dialogue was mundane and profane. And, the mystery was unintriguing.


    Would you ever listen to anything by SJD Peterson again?

    No.


    What didn’t you like about Rusty Topsfield’s performance?

    It's hard to see how he could have breathed life in this turd of a mystery.


    What character would you cut from Splintered?

    All of these characters had to be re-written with backstories and life. This book needed a real editor. 90 percent of reference to local law enforcement can't be an insult, and 90% of emotion exhibited by characters can't be anger. You have write characters from the inside out for goodness sakes.


    Any additional comments?

    Read other LGBTQ mystery authors for better characters and better prose, including Josh Lanyon, Marshall Thornton, Dani Alexander, or Dorien Grey.

    Story
    "DNF"

    I was really excited to listen to this, but it ended up being a DNF. It was like the worst/most cliche episodes of every FBI procedural out there. And the fact that the main characters name is Hutch, made me keep thinking this was a bad fic of Criminal Minds, where it autocorrects Hotch.
