A decade ago, artist Peter Faust murdered a woman and was found not guilty by reason of insanity. Today, unrepentant and living in L.A., he's become a cult celebrity among the radical fringe. When one of his fans appears to be stalking him, he hires rogue security consultant Abby Sinclair for protection.
Unfortunately for Abby, her longtime adversary, FBI agent Tess McCallum, also gets drawn into the case. Both are about to discover the true meaning of evil.

"In Abby and Tess, Prescott has created two of the fiercest and most commanding heroines to come along in a while...A daring dynamic." (New Mystery Reader)
The villain is a German serial killer who subjects the listener to his endless philosophical psycho babble. This is made more intolerable by the narrator using a faux German accent that sounds like the Count from Sesame Street!
I regret being so critical because I am usually a Michael Prescott fan. But the awful accent of the villain and the one dimensional characters made this audiobook a major disappointment!
Yes! He is a good writer but was sure "off his game" with this stinker!
Worst German accent for the villain and his naïve girlfriend sounded like a Valley Girl on a bad day!
Disappointment and a slight cringing at the narration.
Probably not. I loved the narrator but she has one fatal flaw that disturbs the listening experience. She uses a hard G when speaking. For instance, instead of saying ring, she says ringa, blinga, etc. You are right in the midst of a great part of the book and out comes that little hard G. I just found it distracting. It's up to you to decide if it is a fatal flaw.
Loved the plot. Kept me very entertained and really made me listen.
If you like serial killers with your cereal, you'll love this book!
