Publisher's Summary

For the past three months, Eve Renner has struggled to remember the night she was nearly killed and her lover was tried for murder. She remembers getting the anxious call from a friend from her past: "Meet me at the cabin. I've got evidence." She remembers seeing that friend lying in a pool of blood. And she remembers a horrifying glimpse of her lover Cole Dennis's face as a gunshot plunged her into darkness. Now, her memory and emotions scarred, Eve has returned to New Orleans to forget the past. But the past will not be forgotten. Eve's shattered memory has helped Cole walk on murder charges just as a new series of killings begins.

The latest murders are bizarre and baffling. The victims are killed in a ritual fashion, a series of numbers tattooed into their bodies. 212. 101. 111. 323. There is no clue to their meaning, no connection to the victims except one: Our Lady of Virtues Hospital, the crumbling old asylum that was once the scene of unspeakable madness. For Eve, it was a second home as a child. Her father was a doctor there, and she spent hours exploring its secret chambers, hidden rooms, and forbidden passageways. Somewhere in its decaying rooms lies the key to a terrible crime, a betrayal beyond imagining whose echoes are now being felt with a vengeance - a crime that seems to lead to Eve herself. And the only man she can trust with the search is Cole, her former lover and, just possibly, a cold-blooded killer.

As forgotten memories begin to surface, bodies are found and each twist leads to another terrifying piece of the puzzle. Someone is watching, planning, luring her back to the ruins of Our Lady and the shocking truths hidden there - someone who has been waiting for this moment to strike. He is deadlier than she knows. For the sins of the past must be revealed, the crimes brought to justice, and the price paid - in blood.

    I live in the REAL "Real world house". We are right over the Narrow's Bridge and the view is awesome. 8 roommates can be fun and nuts!

    Story
    "Family takes on a new meaning in this mystery."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    To mystery lovers this is satisfying. It's not the absolute best but it is a good read and listen.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I kept an interest in the story as it has a few threads that merged and kept me interested in the next set of facts revealed. I wasn't quite able to put it all together which is not the usual case. Even with a good mystery I can usually figure out who the doer is.


    Which character – as performed by Joyce Bean – was your favorite?

    While I liked the main character, Eve, the cop's daughter was a very interesting character. She shook things up and annoyed people but proved to be a vital person to the story.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The descriptions of walking through the old mental hospital I found really creepy. Old mental hospitals get to me, I worked in one and it always made my skin crawl. Didn't keep that job forever, lol.


    Any additional comments?

    While this isn't literature 101 it is very entertaining. So much so that I will buy other books by this author.

    Story
    "Absolutely Painful"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A different narrator, a less predictable story, and a LOT less boring babbling unimportant details.


    Has Absolute Fear turned you off from other books in this genre?

    TOTALLY finished with the Bentz and Montoya series. If cops are really this stupid, naive and gullible, I don't want to know this.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Joyce Bean?

    Prefer a male narrator, as Joyce Bean just butchers male voice, and this book had too many males. Story painful


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I don't think so, probably done with Lisa Jackson


    Any additional comments?

    To be fair, I did enjoy Afraid to Die: A Selena Alvarez & Reagan Pescol Novel, Book 4.
