Publisher's Summary

After saving her three-year-old daughter from a car-jacking, off-duty police detective Jocelyn Rush ends up in the ER. The last person she expects to run into is Anita Grant, former prostitute and an old acquaintance from Jocelyn's days on patrol. In spite of her obvious injuries - mutilated hands and feet - Anita refuses to talk about what happened. Reluctantly, Jocelyn backs off, and Anita's case goes to Philadelphia's Special Victims Unit.

Before long, Jocelyn is pulled into the SVU's investigation. Anita is finally ready to talk, but only to Jocelyn. Her story is harrowing, even to a seasoned veteran like Jocelyn. Working with SVU, Jocelyn's investigation unearths a series of similar crimes going back four years. Three men are preying on local prostitutes, viciously assaulting and mutilating them.

The police apprehend two of the suspects, but the third eludes capture. As the hunt for the most sadistic of the three intensifies, and his crimes escalate, Jocelyn and her colleagues have precious few leads. Then a monster from Jocelyn's past resurfaces. She doesn't want to be reminded of the terrible secret that destroyed her family nearly 20 years earlier, but the man offers her a lead that could crack Anita's case.

To solve it, Jocelyn must connect her past with her present-before a sadistic attacker sets his sights on her.

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    "Better than the ratings"

    I'm torn between 3 and 4 stars. I settled on three stars because it is a mystery novel and I was certain of the solution to the mystery before the book was half complete.

    Story
    "Terrible Sound Quality"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The narration had a tinny echo, and at times the reader was so robotic I wondered if it was a real person. I could not finish it because of the narration.


    If you’ve listened to books by Lisa Regan before, how does this one compare?

    I haven't.


    What didn’t you like about Craig R. Nickerson’s performance?

    Robotic, poor sound quality.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It is probably a good story, but I will have to read it in print if I ever go back to it.


    Any additional comments?

    I need to remind myself to listen to the samples before purchasing.

    "Great Story, Poor Narration"

    The narrator was extremely robotic & choppy sounding. It was a great story, but you could hear background noise while he was reading. You could also ten tell he was reading. It didn't sound fluid at all.

    "Really bad acoustics!!"

    I loved the story...very suspenseful. The narrator wasn't bad but it's like he was in a tunnel reading, very distracting at first.
