Dismembered bodies of women for hire litter the sides of the road in rural Tennessee. It has happened before, 30 years prior.
Not knowing if the murders are that of a copycat or the original killer making a reappearance, Agent Hank Rawlings, along with Agent Beth Harper, is once again dispatched to the scene.
With little help from the local authorities and limited resources at their disposal, Hank, Beth, and a local agent are tasked with pulling back the layers of deceit to circle closer to the man responsible. If they had only known the sheer horror of what awaited them at the end of their search, they might have opted to sit this one out.

I am so very disappointed with this book. The previous book in this series (Drained) was excellent and left me wanting more. With this book I wanted less and couldn't wait for it to end. I did listen to the entire book expecting something, I'm not sure what. I think the core story was good with shades of Jeffrey Dahmer. It was the Anthony Perkins in Psycho and a few other scenes with extreme gore that I didn't find believable or entertaining.
I do not recommend this book but am willing to try the next book in the series of put on Audible.

I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
I liked the first book in the FBI Agent Hank Rawlings series, so I preordered Consumed which is the second book in the series. That was a mistake. The novel is set in rural Tennessee where a family of father, mother and two grown sons, one a cop, kill many prostitutes and cook and eat their flesh. This novel is an intense suspense detective thriller which is not for me. This will be my last novel by this author.
I enjoyed how the characters developed and the story came together. Not for the weak hearted.
