Hold on to your heart.
The sadistic experiments conducted in Slaughter Creek have left the town mired in mystery. As Special Agent Rafe Hood works to tie up the loose ends, the discovery of a grisly murder reveals there’s a new killer at work. Someone they’re calling "The Dissector". Someone who keeps his victims' body parts as gruesome trophies…
Special Agent Liz Lucas has been on leave, recovering from the trauma of her last case. But returning to find the Dissector will demand extra caution - especially with Rafe leading the investigation. The last time the two worked together, passions ran high and the resulting emotional interference with the case nearly cost Liz her life.
Now, even though their attraction is more magnetic than ever, Liz and Rafe will need to resist getting involved again if they’re to avoid the lethal distraction. As mounting evidence suggests the Dissector’s kills are personal, a threat returns from Liz’s past that suggests she was hardly safe to begin with.…

I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
I have no particular problem with very gruesome novels, but this novel is not very good. The narration, on the other hand, is superb.
Yes on both counts as I enjoyed both Rita Herron's writing and Tanya Eby's narration.
It felt forced, like there was the expection of a third book and and it was not very good.
OK, so this is the third book in the Slaughter Creek series and my least favorite, even though I really, really liked it. I would have given it 5 stars if Liz hadn't pulled a TSTL twice. I can understand an author wanting to have their heroine to seem strong but not stupid. Liz should have called Rafe as back-up but she was a little to stubborn and got her rear-end taken by a killer. Rafe came in and saved her only to have the same thing happen the next day with a different killer. Again she knew she should call Rafe and didn't. That cost this book a star.I did love Rafe and Jake and Nick. I liked that you had a choice of possible bad guys: Six, Castor, Truitt, Roper and Harlon. As well as our favorite villain, Arthur Blackwood. And I have to say that even though Six was crazy I could certainly understand why he killed those nurses. (I only condone murder in books.) LOL..
I'm going to read Dying for Love now, Amelia's story, but this one is a little iffy for me. She was whacked during all the other book so I'm not so sure she can ever be better.
I got this book and the audio version free with my KindleUnlimited.
As to the narrator: Wonderful! Ms. Eby did a fabulous job on all three of the book so far and I'm sure she'll do just as good a job on the 4th one. Everyone has their own voice and every man sounds just like a man.
I love to listen to books while driving makes it pass by so fast.
loved the story line and will be sharing with friends. Shocked me to find out the who did it but way worth it
While I am enjoying this series, this is my least favorite so far. It just seemed like a filler book to continue on the series. I wasn't bad, it was just okay.
This book in Slaughter Creek series continues with the same story line and plot. One of the kids in the experiment goes crazy and gets revenge on the people in charge. And goes on a killing spree. However, we did get an extra killer in this book so there is that.
The romance portion seemed a bit forced and not real genuine. The chemistry between Rafe and Liz just sort of fell flat. There is a sex scene that was nicely written, not erotica.
Also, another thing I notice in the book is there sure are a lot of government officials in this small town of Slaughter Creek. I mean there is a sheriff, the FBI and serial killer profilers. Just seems unrealistic they all live there.
There is lots of great dialogue, which did help the book immensely.
As for the narration. It was great. I would have not finished this book if I was just reading it. So Tanya Eby made this book 10 times better that it was. She does a great job of giving everyone their own distinct voice. The men sound like men and she reads with emotion. I really like her narrations. It also seems like she gets better with every book I listen to that she has narrated. I highly recommend this narrator.
I would move if I lived in that town. LOL
Anyway, this book was a free read free listen whispersync with my KU subscription so it was worth it for sure.
