Publisher's Summary

When her daughter, Rachael, working a summer job at the Ritz-Carlton, calls Cleveland forensic scientist Theresa MacLean to say a murder has just occurred at the hotel, Theresa knows she's stepping into a forensic mess. A local criminal-defense attorney has been bound and beaten to death. The victim was attending a convention for criminal-defense attorneys, which means the list of suspects could stretch a mile long. Two more bodies are found in quick succession, each killed in a similar manner, and the authorities know they have a serial killer on their hands.

As Theresa searches for the threads that tie the cases together, she begins to fear that both she and her daughter are closer to danger than either of them realize.

    Story
    "Best of her 3 books (so far)"

    I enjoyed reading one of Lisa Black's earlier books in this series (her first book) and enjoyed listening to the second one. This one was much better than either of those, I thought. Narrator also does a good job with the various characters and the tone, etc. I'll be looking for her next book and with this narrator.

    Story
    "good story & narration but ..."

    I liked the story, set in Cleveland- which sounds like a much more interesting city than I imagined it to be- even worth a visit one day. I found the relationship between Theresa and her daughter Rachel believalbe- would like to learn more about her cousin Frank.


    What I found distracting was the "you have reached the end of the CD" messages- 1 in the 1st have and 2 in the 2nd half- not up the usual standards for audible books.
