Publisher's Summary

The murder was so appalling even a hardened agent like FBI medical examiner Dr. Jessica Coran was shocked - the spinal cord had been literally ripped from the woman's back.

Ghastly as it was, it wasn't unique. A man had already been convicted of killing his wife in the exact same fashion. Is the doomed death-row prisoner innocent?

There's only one thing for Jessica to do: find the real killer.

That means following a gruesome trail of carnage, victim by victim, straight into the absolute darkness of a madman's inescapable fantasies. Watch your back, Jessica....

(This audiobook is 11th in Robert W. Walker's Instinct series. Also includes an excerpt from Dead On by Robert W. Walker, and Shot of Tequila by J.A. Konrath.)

About the author: Robert W. Walker is the author of more than 40 thriller and horror novels, including 11 books in the acclaimed Instinct series featuring FBI medical examiner Jessica Coran.

    "creepy"
    Any additional comments?

    this was a gift for an honest review, I almost returned this when I realised it was the last in a series, but I was very glad that I didn't.
    the story was easy to follow, dispite not know any of the characters before, there was quite a lot of referance to a single previous book, but I still feel that I could go back and read/listen to that one too.
    Very creepy, exciting, edge of your seat plot, grabs your atention from start to finish. good likable , good guys , totally evil "baddie".
    Narration was well done
    A series I will go back and find more of .

    Story
    "Chilling Crimes"

    Overall, I did enjoy this book, although to be honest I really had to skip over many of the bits from the perspective of the killer - I just couldn't stomach it. I am a crime story and horror fan, but something in this seemed to strike a nerve. So be warned, you may find this gruesome. That may of course be a big plus to some readers!

    I enjoyed the side of the story from the law enforcement a lot more, and the desperate bid to save an innocent man from death row. I did however find some of the premises a bit far fetched, namely the two people who were lookalikes, but no-one in the book seemed to actually notice this until the plot device was required for the story. I also found the personal relationships between three of the main characters a little confusing. I might have missed something

    Jill Maglione's narration was very good, and she did a great job IMHO of doing both male and female voices as well as accents.

    I am interested in picking up some of the other books in this series, as they are on audible also.

    "Criminal Minds minus SSA Morgan"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes but it's a long winded book. If there's an abridged version, I would recommend that first.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Robert W. Walker? Why or why not?

    I probably would. I like his writing, it kept me interested, wasn't thrilled with the narrator.


    Did Jill Maglione do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Wasn't a fan, most of the accents, with the exception of Sharp, all sounded the same.


    Do you think Absolute Instinct needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    All ends were wrapped up. I could see more Jessica books, with other adventures.


    Any additional comments?

    I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

    "Very gory thriller."
    Any additional comments?

    This was quite a story. Not much of a mystery, but quite gory thriller. If that's your thing, then this is definitely the book for you. It didn't feel like the serial killer had any sort of reason for killing people, and it was just explained away with a hereditary reason. I don't think it really worked for the story.

    Jill Maglione did a pretty good job. She was a bit slow and I had to listen to the story at 3x speed and some of the characters had really odd voices. But she gave all the characters lots of personality.

    Very gory thriller.

    **I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.**
