But days later, Maddie is attacked a second time, and again McCabe returns to question her. He convinces her that the only way she'll ever be safe again is if the killer is caught, and the quickest way to nab him is to use her as bait. Maddie reluctantly agrees, and sparks fly and then ignite as McCabe shadows her. But their unexpected romance throws McCabe off his stride - and puts Maddie in the hands of a killer.

I thoroughly enjoyed this read. McCabe was the perfect hero. This book kept me guessing and didn't end until it ended. I think I will miss the characters.
I liked the book. Really, I did. I like the narrator. The story flows so smoothly, UNTIL... the narrator spells out U N S U B instead of saying a word that even school children know. I would get so engrossed in the compelling story and the way the narrator so competently read it and hearing that word spelled out would be like running into a brick wall. It completely halted the easy flow of the story and it would take a while for me to get back into it. Only to have it happen again, and again, and again.
Good book with a compelling story that holds your interest. Until the narrator spells out U N S U B instead of saying the word. Come on! The narrator is excellent in every area except this. A decent editor should have caught this well before it was released.
Funny, Suspense, and BEST Robards so far!
The characters are real.
Joyce Bean is my favorite narrator.
The plot was interesting and the narrator did an excellent job. I was interested all the way through until the end of the book!
... I won't ever revisit this book/listen. The storyline is fine, but awfully 'wordy' for audio. Quite a lot of non-atmospheric filler lines - taking 50 words to express what needs only 10. That plus the reader reading 'unsub' as an acronym (U-N-S-U-B) instead of the abbreviation for 'unidentified subject' (read as one word - unsub) is quite distracting. Hearing multiple FBI agents referring to the U-N-S-U-B is funny, but surely a mistake that an editor should have caught.
All that said, I didn't turn it off. I did want to know which of the two possible killers was after the main character.
You are the sum of what you read!
This is a new author for me, so I was uncertain what I would find. What I found was a fast paced mystery with tight suspense and a surprise finale. I would have preferred a different narrator due to the difficulty she had with deep male voices. Overall, I am pleasantly surprised.
It was interesting
Yes, I really enjoy Karen Robards
When they were in the woods.
