©2003 John Lutz; (P)2003 Books on Tape, Inc.
This was my first purchase from audible.com. Scott Brick has clearly spoiled me for other narrators. He is fabulous. And this was also my first John Lutz book and I guarantee it won't be my last. Without spoiling the plot for someone else, let me just say that the suspenseful tension is often at fever pitch. Thriller/mystery fans will not be disappointed.
This audiobook author was new to me, chosen mostly because of the narrator, Scott Brick. I was pleased with the choice; the story kept my interest throughout. My only regret was the quick ending to a very extensive build-up.
I really enjoyed this book. Well-written. Suspenseful. I loved the charcters, I found myself up late many nights listening to just a few more chapters, and then I would end up being "scared" awake, with my heart running a mile a minute from the story.
I also thought the background and first-person take on the killer was fascinating, adding a new texture to the storyline.
The cherry on this sundae is Scott Brick, a truly superb reader. Thanks Audible!

I really wish that Audible had more thn two John Lutz books available. I have read "Night Spyder" and my wife has read that book and "Night Caller". We both agree that this man REALLY knows how to write thriller fiction. This is truly an audio book that is hard to turn off. And the narration -- Scott Brick. Nothing more need be said!
I love this author's books. I have listened to this book and The Night Caller and The Night Watcher, as well. I also like the narrator, Scott Brick. I've learned that the narrator can make or break a book, and he's very good. I'm looking foward to listening to more of Mr. Lutz's books. I'm so glad that I found him.
This is the first John Lutz book I've read. He does a great job with the characters. The ending was very disapointing. I can't say more because I don't want to give anything away. I found it very lazy on the part of the author.

Scott Brick's narration, excellent character development and some pretty evil folks were the positives for this listen. The negatives included some unbelievable dot connecting by Lead Investigator Horn and plot digressions that led to nowhere. I've listened to four books by John Lutz and have enjoyed all of them. I've awarded four stars to three of them (including this one) and five to Chill of Night. I'll keep listening and hope for another five star experience.
