When beautiful serial killer Gretchen Lowell captured her last victim - the man in charge of hunting her down - she quickly established who was really in control of the investigation. So why, after ten days of horrifying physical and mental torture, did she release Detective Archie Sheridan from the brink of death and hand herself in?
Two years on, Archie now returns to lead the search for a new killer, whose recent attacks on teenage girls have left the city of Portland reeling. Shadowed by vulnerable young reporter Susan Ward, Archie knows that only one person can help him climb into the mind of this psychopath.
But can Archie finally manage to confront the demons of his past without being consumed by them?

Yes, its interesting and has a sadistic apeal to it. You cant help but feel for Archies wife and the reporter. Its the knid of book where you can listen to it once but the second and third time you pick up on things you missed the first time around.
The moments where you get glimpses into the torture that Archie goes through,
She brings the characters to life and really has the warped sense of the serial killer down pat.
This was my first thriller, i'm so glad i gave it a go, its a great listen. It really does have a depth into the killers persona that is just facinating, the killeer's sometimes disturbing and sometimes enviable. The relationship between the cop and the killer is something i am going to follow just to see what happens, its like watching a car crash or something equally horrible, but you just cant help but watch it unfold. I've already got the second book and that too is shaping up to be thrilling and twisted.I reccomend giving it a go.
ever since the hunger games audio book ive loved carolyn mccormicks voice. i want her on a sat nav and i dont even drive. would just be nice to hear ehr dictate my directions in life ha
the book itself was well paced, i especially love gretchin, she's fierce!
gave this 3 star as i thought it was blatently obvious who the killer was, not alot surprised me about this book, but still its a good listen
