He's haunted by the memory of a kidnapping case gone wrong. Not wanting history to repeat itself, Detective Matt Brady struggles to solve the disappearances of seven young women, but he quickly finds himself pitted against a criminal organization that knows as much about police procedure as he does; an organization that will do whatever it takes to stay one step ahead of him. His troubles are compounded when a young veterinarian injects herself into the investigation and is targeted to become victim number eight. When he tries to protect her, he finds himself in the crosshairs of a professional cop killer. Can Brady solve the case in time to save his new love, or will this investigation be the death of both of them?

Yes definitely, this is a brilliantly written compelling thriller, action packed, clever and with twists and turns which are guaranteed to keep the reader guessing until the very end.
Everyone knows that the person we become in life can be affected in a moment, by a word, or circumstance. The paths we take as a result and their consequences are sometimes, only discovered after the passing of time. These life-changing moments or words, for some people are stamped in their mind forever, silently festering and waiting to emerge, bringing back memories, which cloud the present.
This book is even more enjoyable because, whilst writing it, the author has been able to draw from his wealth and variety of personal experience in police and law, among which is his time as a Temple patrol officer and, Assistant General Counsel for the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.
This is a really gripping thriller to listen to which is brilliantly narrated by Eddie Frierson. It is set In Temple, Texas and Police Detective Matt Brady, assisted by FBI Special Agent Steve Casani, is investigating the disappearances of five beautiful women. Desperate, with no leads and the number of missing women growing at an alarming pace, Matt is desperate for answers. This audiobook is a real treat for anyone who loves of action packed crime thrillers.
The writing of this book is so elementary and amateurish, that it's hard to believe it was actually published. Several times I checked the chapters to see how much longer I had to endure this assault on my brain. (note: I believe in finishing a book... even an audio book). Numerous times I shook my head in disbelief at the inane explanations.
I've purchased 32 audiobooks through Audio.com in the past year. I always have an audiobook going whenever I'm driving. I will continue to buy thriller, police procedurals, & mystery audiobooks, but I will never buy another book written by Alan Brenham or read by Eddie Frierson.
Eddie Frierson is probably a nice person... he should not ever narrate another book, however. Eric G. Dove, Ron McLarty, Peter Hermann are just a few of the narrators I follow purposefully. They all know how to voice a female or childs tone without the ridiculous falsetto. Mr. Frierson'sThe idiocy of the classic N.J. mobster voice... the brain splitting little child's voice... I'm sorry, this is just the worst.
I am truly sorry to say but there are, quite literally, NO REDEEMING QUALITIES in this book. The writing is bad, the narration is horrible, and the story is a straight, predicable line.
Do yourself a favor, if you are at all tempted to purchase this book, listen to as much of the narration as they'll allow you. If you hear any of the characters voiced, you will run and hide.
Bottomline... I've purchased books that were not worth a listen and I didn't return them. In all good conscience, I must return this book.
