Genevieve knows all about nightmares. She herself survived two months as a psychopath's prisoner. And now this new menace stalks the city. Spooked by the bizarre slayings, she turns to P.I. Joe Connolly, her past rescuer, friend and...hopefully something more, if he would just quit avoiding her.
At first Joe isn't even sure there is a case. But the body count rises, and it's clear that a twisted killer is on the loose. Even more unsettling is the guidance he starts receiving from beyond the grave. People he knows to be dead are appearing, offering him clues and leads, and warning of some terrible danger ahead.
But can even the spirits stay the hand of a madman bent on murder?

I have not read print edition
plot was intriguing.
Love having the two narrators. i'm not particularly critical of voice changes, but few can do the opposite sex very well.
I really enjoyed the previous novel, "The Dead Room" of which this novel was intended to be a sequel. Alas, the performance was so far removed from it's predecessor that I spent the entire book trying not to compare the performances.
If an author wishes to have sequels performed, please consider using the same performer(s). The change in this case was just too great.
The concept that the both the living as well as deceased characters from the previous novel are still participants in this novel.
The performance was too "sterile", lacking in depth and emotion. It was similar to elevator music in it's novel form.
Again, the novel would have been best performed by the previous performer. She had the ability to give life to the characters.
No, of all the audio books that I have read, there are few that I would feel were a waste of my time and money. I didn't really care for this book. I didn't care for the story line - it was somewhat irritating and not believable. Plus, the female narrator had the female parts almost bad enough that I nearly turned off the book. I did finish the book - and it was okay. But, overall - not the author's best book.
It was okay...
She came across as whiny - not sure that is the best word - but it fits. Really did not come across as a very believable production.
