It's criminal profiler Ivy Dunlap's job to unravel the psyches of the most dangerous men alive. None haunt her dreams more than the killer who took her son's life sixteen years ago, then silently disappeared into the dark. Now an urgent request for help from the Chicago police has reawakened Ivy's greatest nightmare.

The Madonna Murderer has returned to fulfill his calling. This time Ivy understands the killer, and will face her greatest fear to stop him from killing again...

    "Compelling and deliciously creepy"

    I've been a regular reader of Anne Frasier's thrillers for as long as she's been writing them. What a happy surprise to see that Hush has made its way to audio!

    Narrator Emily Beresford convincingly brings Frasier's characters to life with distinct voices for all. It's a tautly written serial killer police procedural, an intelligent and meaty story. Frasier's hero and heroine are refreshingly human; a welcome change from the stick figure kickass heroine and waxed-torso-of-steel hero so prevalent in recent romantic suspense.

    I'd love to see more of Frasier's suspense brought to audio. Ditto her romances written as Theresa Weir.

    I'm an audiobook narrator and I listen to a lot of audiobooks. Happy to share my thoughts on books I've enjoyed.

    Story
    "Not a cookie cutter"
    If you could sum up Hush in three words, what would they be?

    interesting, suspenseful, fresh


    What other book might you compare Hush to and why?

    Hush is a crime drama much like many others but the storyline is quite fresh and UNLIKE any other I've personally read.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I found Ms. Beresford's narration to be stiff and slow in the beginning but she seemed to warm up to the story so that by about the middle of the book, I was able to lose myself in the book and forget about the narration.


    Any additional comments?

    If you enjoy stories involving psychopathic killers, this will be an enjoyable read for you.

    I love to read. On average I read and/or listen to more than 100 books a year. Audible has been a fantastic addition to my life. Love it!

    "Run of the Mill Thriller"

    A quick listen and not a bad time killer. Overall unoriginal, but great for a day on the beach or a drive in the car. Nothing special but narrated well.

    Story
    "Disjointed"
    Where does Hush rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    There's so much potential in this story, but ultimately it felt like a puzzle that never quite fit together. It's disjointed and skips around a lot and leaves this listener feeling unfocused.


    Has Hush turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. I like the genre.


    Which character – as performed by Emily Beresford – was your favorite?

    Emily did a good job with her narration. Some of the characters were difficult to distinguish if there were several in a conversation. She has a pleasant voice and is suited to this genre.

    Story
    "Not finished, and Not Going to Bother"

    Painful. This book is really lame - at least for me. Maybe I just wasn't in the mood for a weak and unbelievable story that's mushy with romance. Maybe I've outgrown romantic thrillers.

    Basically, the main character, who was the serial killer's victim 16 years ago, and whose baby was killed by said killer, is asked to come back to help with the case when the murderer re-emerges 16 years later. Yeah. Okay. Let's just pull a damaged victim out of hiding to help catch the guy.

    The main male character is okay, has a strained relationship with his adopted son.

    Blah blah blah.

    I just can't bear to listen to any more.

    Get this book if you are a fan of romantic thrillers. You might like it. I prefer no romance with my murder, whenever possible.

    If Audible had a "Donate Your Used Book Bin", I would throw it in in a heartbeat.

    "Decent story somewhat predictable"

    The book held my interest even though the story is somewhat mundane
    The characters were rather bland
    Didn't become very invested in their narrative
    The narrator herself was decent, but , sounded like she was merely reciting the story
    I like narration with a bit more drama

    "Story depleted by narration"
    Would you try another book from Anne Frasier and/or Emily Beresford?

    I like Anne Frasier's writing, but Emily Beresford literally read the book with no attempt at expression. When transitioning to a new chapter, she didn't say "chapter...", which in Frasier's books is an indication that we're now focusing on a different character. This led to confusion while listening. I couldn't get through more than half the audio book.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Emily Beresford’s performances?

    I'd rather not.

    "Frightening Serial Killer~Fascinating Story"

    Though not for the faint of heart, I really enjoyed this story. Max and Ivy are likable characters (would love to see a sequel) and if this were a print book, I would call it a real page turner. The ending, in my opinion, was just perfect.

    Run of the mill stuff. I like layers to my story and this one has no surprises and no depth.
