Forensic psychiatrist Kate Myers believes the killer of two teenage girls in Bigler County, California, is the same man who savagely murdered her twin sister over fifteen years ago. Working on sheer tenacity, she sets out to prove it.
Deputy Sheriff Ben Slater hides his personal pain behind the job, but Kate's arrival knocks his world on its axis. He wants to believe her wild theory, but the idea of a serial killer with this pathology is bizarre. Together, they work to find a killer whose roots began in a small town in Bigler County, but whose violence spread across the nation. Soon, the Janus-like killer, more monster than man, fixates on Kate and wants nothing more than to kill her "again."

Great story keeps you wondering. The bad guy was super creepy and the narrator made his laugh send chills down my spine.
Not a bad story, with good characters, but the story kept taking a back seat to the author's need to turn this into a steamy sex novel. I found it hard to believe that anyone as driven as Kate was to find this killer could continually get so derailed by working with a sexy partner. Could have been a much better book with a more subtle approach to the couple's sexual escapades.
Your beliefs become your thoughts. Your thoughts become your words. Your words become your actions.
Nothing. This book was too real to me. I had to make myself finish listening to it.
I didn't really have a favorite character in this novel, which is a first in my entire life.
I can't honestly say. I didn't like the story, far too gruesome for me, too much violence against the innocent and helpless.
No, not at all. I finished it because I had to know how it ended, if the watcher was ever brought to justice.
I don't mean for this to be so negative, it is simply not the kind of book I expected it to be. I have a problem with abuse and with people who prey upon others who are weaker. This book is too real. The experiences could be factual. My main reason for reading is to be entertained, to enjoy, have fun, get caught up in the story, and this book was not any of things for me. It isn't a bad book or narration, it is just not my kind of book. I hope that helps.
Because of this book I don't think I could read another book by this author or the narrator.
No. I love mysteries- thrillers with a little romance!
I think a duo of narrators a man and a woman would have worked for this story. The man just couldnt make the story interesting. In other books I have listened too Carla Mercer Mayer has done an excellent job posing as multiple characters.
Disappointed. This story has all the elements to be good. It is just portrayed horribly.
I do believe this story was confusing. There is to much running around between characters but because of the narrator you can hardly tell the difference between them.
I didn't warm up to the characters, and there was a lot of angst in secrets they hid from each other but I thought the story was pretty good. A bit too graphic in some of the violence and love-making, but didn't put me off enough to make me not enjoy the story.
I would probably read another at some time, but I'm not rushing out to look for sequels.
Narration was unobtrusive which is the way I like it. I caught one editing error but only one so that was fine.
