Women are being murdered in upstate New York, their bodies found mysteriously hanging in chains. With the FBI called in, given the bizarre nature of the murders - and the lack of any clues - there is only one agent they can turn to: Special Agent Riley Paige.
Riley, reeling from her last case, is reluctant to take on a new one, since she is still convinced a former serial killer is out there, stalking her. She knows, though, that her ability to enter a serial killer's mind and her obsessive nature is what will be needed to crack this case, and she just can't refuse - even if it will push her over the edge.
Riley's search takes her deep into a killer's deluded mind as it leads her to orphanages, mental hospitals, and prisons, all in an effort to understand the depth of his psychosis. Realizing she is up against a true psychopath, she knows time is short before he strikes again. But with her own job on the line and her own family a target, and with her fragile psyche collapsing, it may all be too much for her - and too late.

The characters were defined enough that I wanted to find out what happened to them.
However I really had problems with the narrators English accent for characters who were supposed to be American. Not just the accent but pronunciations and embellishment of characters made the narration really weird.
The main characters motivations and relationships were improbable.. I listened to the end but I was glad when it was over...
The story was very good. The narrator would have been wonderful but not on this book. Her accent just didn't work for me and I found myself paying more attention to it than the story.
Resides in Elkton, M.D. (but my heart belongs in Upstate, N.Y.)
With this book either one would would be fine.
When Eugene was talking to his CHAINS.
Peterson, scared the sh - - out of me.
No, it did make me feel sorry for Eugene.
Another excellent read. Couldn't put it down, read it in one sitting.
Excellent read totally absorbing. I have really enjoyed this authors work, every chapter I thought I would stop and listen later but I just kept on till the end
i couldn't put it down a very good book easily read this blog about it
