Publisher's Summary

Police Sergeant Lou Boldt heads a special task force within Seattle’s Homicide bureau. His job: find and stop the Cross Killer, a twisted, perverse serial murderer who has eluded police for six months and paralyzed the city. But when a body washes up on the shore of Puget Sound, Boldt thinks the killer has finally made a mistake.

This body shows some of the work of the Cross Killer - but a job badly botched. Did this woman die while trying to escape? Did she knowingly jump in the water to preserve a clue? And is she now desperately trying to tell Boldt something? With the help of the alluring Daphne Matthews, a police psychologist, Boldt pieces together the complex puzzle - and the listener is taken along on a journey into the mind of a killer, and into the day-by-day nuts and bolts of police work, that is among the best in modern crime fiction. Undercurrents is a roller-coaster ride in the dark that will intrigue, startle, and satisfy.

    "Waste of a credit"
    Would you try another book from Ridley Pearson and/or Jeff Cummings?

    Cliched writing, unsympathetic character, uninspired plot. Some of the writing made me wince. This book got good reviews but there are so many more & better mysteries out there. I was hoping to find another series that I would enjoy, but I only listened to the whole book because I paid for it.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Ridley Pearson again?

    no


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jeff Cummings?

    He was fine as the main character but when he gave voice to some of the others his voice was high pitched and grating.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No

    "Outdated"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The outdated criminology methodology made me wince.


    What was most disappointing about Ridley Pearson???s story?

    I'm sure it was captivating when first published.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Male and female voices overlapped.


    You didn???t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I liked the local.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish audible would publish the original date as opposed to the audible date of issue.

    "Nope!"

    Too soap opera-ish for me. And, please, the only character who hadn't a high pitched, nasal, annoying voice was the protagonist. Didn't like it.

    "Gripping, from start to finish"

    I stumbled onto this book quite by accident but was gripped from the first page. Gritting, hard hitting and with great humour, the characters are so beautifully fashioned you cant wait to see what happens to them next.
