Eleven years ago, the Co-Ed Slayer murdered nine female college students on the Oregon State University campus. Lacey Campbell barely survived his attack, but he killed her best friend, Suzanne, whose body was never found.

Someone is killing the witnesses who sent the Co-ed Slayer to prison a decade ago. All the evidence points to the Co-ed Slayer as the culprit, only he’s long since dead. So who’s the new killer? And is Lacey next in line to die?

I would listen to it again if I was really, really, really bored.
I guess I will if she reads the next two books that I already purchased, but I would rather not. When I first began listening I thought it was a computer reading program. It was that bad.
I may have enjoyed the book more if someone else had performed it.
I have listened to several audiobooks and I have to say Hidden is one of my favorites so far. The author draws you into the story with well defined characters and an interesting plot. I read a lot and there's always a few things in a book that are a little annoying but not to much in this book.
I thoroughly enjoyed Kate Rudd's performance! She is one of the few narrators that I have really enjoyed listening to. She made the story come to life and didn't have annoying male and female voices that tend to detract from the story. Hers were all well done.
Interesting, Crime, Romance
Some of Sharon Sala's mysteries
She has a flat, brash voice, no differentiation for character, and she mispronounced "Willamette" every time she said it. It rhymes with 'dammit,' not 'brunette.'
Not especially... it was like watching a crime drama on TV: fun, interesting, complex, but not exactly life-altering.
The performance was fine and I have no issues with the way that Kate rudd narrates. I would probably not chose another book by Kendra Elliot again.
None. I found the descriptions of the characters to stretched and their actions too far from reality for me to be convinced.
If you're really into romance novels you will like this one.
If you're looking for a mystery, don't look here. Poor characterization, poor writing, and a plot that reads more like a bodice-ripper than a mystery.
Yes ~ anyone who loves good suspense will enjoy this book.
A Tess Gerrittsen or Karen Rose is who I think the supense most closely resembles, but heavier on the romance than in the Tess Gerrittsen. But pretty gritty deets, and lots of flashes into the killers mind like in a Karen Rose book. I love that! Give you chills! The tone of this book is pretty serious & intense, and again I'd have to compare that to a Karen Rose.
I felt she was very...stilted? Is that the right word? Like her words weren't flowing naturally, and her pauses and inflections weren't in the right places. Her voice was pleasant, and thought she did a great job diferentiating between male and female, but the flow of the story just wasn't as seamless as I thought it could have been. It goes to tell how truly good the story itself was that I stuck with even I wasn't crazy about the narration.
No, but it truly tugged my heart in several places, and I felt like with a better narrator I would proabably have reacted stronger. There heroine had truly been through hell in her life, and there were moments noone could have not ached inside for her.
Just that I'm listening to the next book in the series, Chilled, and it's a new narrator, and I'm already enjoying it so much more.
Hidden is about in the middle of the pack. I have listened to far worse and far better. Nice story.
Jack Harper, just like him.
Not varied enough. My biggest issue with her narration is that she mispronounces Willamette! Living in Oregon, not Orygone, I am getting tired of the mispronouciations. Especially when this isn't live and someone should have caught the mistake and had her rerecord it! It's Will am it, not Willa met.
My extreme reaction is totally about changing place names and landmarks. I've read and listened to many books and the authors don't change the names. It's just irritating, maybe they have to, or maybe the author was too lazy to research.
Despite my irritations I would say it is a good listen, if you get on your plan. I wouldn't pay extra for it. Maybe check it out at the library.
This book was very exciting and enjoyable but I personally did not care much for the narration. It was bland. I almost gave the narrator 2 stars but compared to some of the really bad narrators I've listened to, she wasn't that bad. It's just that compared to some of the really good narrators I've listened to, she paled in comparison. So I settled on 3 stars (though that might be a bit generous).
I ended up listening to about half of it and read the other half in print. I enjoyed it much more in print and definitely recommend it in that format.
Not applicable, but probably not. The narrator of this book was not good.
The story was OK. The narration was robot voice horrible.
Anyone! It was generally read like those pre-programmed robot voice programs with no emotion, words miss-timed, strange pauses, no regard for punctuation.
Another book in this series was read by a man and it was very good so don't write off the series if you had the misfortune to listen to this narrator.
Wonderful book with a good story line. Twists and turns to keep you guessing. Plot twists that smack you upside the head.
"Made for TV Movie"
This would have been a classic 80s TV movie, it played out very much like a daft, not so scary thriller. A skeleton is found in the foundations of a house that the builder has a link to. One of the victims that got away is now being targeted but she'd already got the murderer incarcerated, didn't she?
