Six years ago, Lucy Kincaid was attacked and nearly killed by an online predator. She survived. Her attacker did not. Now Lucy’s goal is to join the FBI and fight cyber-crime, but in the meantime, she’s volunteering with a victim’s rights group, surfing the Web undercover to lure sex offenders into the hands of the law. But when the predators she hunts start turning up as murder victims, the FBI takes a whole new interest in Lucy.
With her future and possibly even her freedom suddenly in jeopardy, Lucy discovers she’s a pawn in someone’s twisted plot to mete out vigilante justice. She joins forces with security expert and daredevil Sean Rogan, and together they track their elusive quarry from anonymous online chat rooms onto the mean streets of Washington, D.C. But someone else is shadowing them: A merciless stalker has his savage eye on Lucy. The only way for her to escape his brutality may be another fight to the death.

Actually Ann Marie Lee did a very good job!
Make the characters more believable. It seems that she couldn't make up her mind about whether or not Lucy was a fragile person that needed people around her to lean on for support or was actually a strong independent woman. I wish she hadn't felt the need to put a romance in the story. That's what made it so silly. I felt like I was listening to a Harlequin romance.
She has a very nice voice and reads well
The sappy romance.
I tried to like this story. I need a new series and stumble on this. The main character is really hard to relate to because the author has made her to be everything rolled up into one person: victim, Olympic athlete, computer genius, criminal profiler, psychologist, marksmen...the list goes on and on and on. The rest of the story wasn't any less cliche.
The internal character monologues are all way too long and over explain every plot point. Each monologue started to feel like teenage angst, but maybe that's the author's target audience?
I ended up skipping several chapters and didn't get lost. So a chapter turner, not so much a page turner.
If you want a good crime novel, this isn't it. But if you want lots and lots and lots of character development and internal turmoil, you'll like it.
The narrator did a good job. I can't fault her for the slow moving story.
I LOVE A GOOD MYSTERY. I AM ALWAYS LOOKING FOR AUTHORS THAT PEAK .MY INTEREST. I ESPECIALLY LIKE MYSTERY SERIES WHERE I CAN GET TO KNOW THE CHARACTERS.
Yes. This is a book I know I will reread in the future!
The entire Lucy Kincaid Series
I've listened to other books narrated by Ann Marie Lee and I'm always pleased by her performance. Her voice is pleasant to listen to and she adds the appropriate intensity to what she is narrating.
Surprise by the number of twists and turns
Beside The Lucy Kincaid Series I would definitely recommend Allison Brennan's FBI Trilogy
I love how this author writes, she has you on edge through out the audible book. This series is a must have.
I love to listen to book series and this did not disappoint although it was not my favorite.
Worth the time and fun to listen to the series and see what transpires.
If you've read the other books written by Allison Brennan you might enjoy this one as well.
I kept feeling like I was missing a huge chunk of the story. This says it's book one but I think she may worked with these characters before. The writing was a bit schmaltzy.
Ann Marie Lee was great. I enjoyed her performance.
Good not Great but I like series so this was a new one for me. Not JD Robb but good.
I didn't like that it just stopped.
A great reader she has puts great voice to the story.
The last 5 chapters
I think this could have been a better book if one book would have told the story of Lucy, without repeating it so much in this book.
Yes because the series gets better
I liked learning about Lucy, I found myself routing for her.
Not really, her voice is too girly for men characters. She should stay away from books like this and stick with romance novels and mousy women.
Yes and I pretty much did.
