Reclusive collector Cutter Merlin is seldom seen in Key West - lately, not at all. Officer Liam Beckett visits Merlin’s curious house and discovers the gentleman in his study. In his death grip: a volume of occult lore and a reliquary. His eyes are wide with fright, his mouth a horrified rictus where spiders now dwell.
Kelsey Donovan returns to the old house to catalog her estranged grandfather’s collection of artifacts and antiquities, vowing to see his treasures divested properly. But she cannot ignore the sense that she’s being watched, the reports of malevolent black figures, the pervasive smell of death.
Is the Merlin house haunted, even cursed? Liam knows well that some ghost stories are true and he swears to protect Kelsey. But there are forces at work for whom one more life is a pittance to pay for their deepest desire.…

Not bad, gradually gained speed and momentum with an interesting ending
Sure, probably should have started with the first of this Trilogy
Too many male voice's needed in this particular story. Hard to pull off for a women
I love this series she did an excellent job of telling another great Key West tale.
Suspense and romance what more could you ask for.
The narrator brings the characters to life.
I can't say because it'll ruin it for the next listener.
Great book for all suspense listeners. You must listen to the whole series.
Yes, as a matter of fact, I've listened to it a couple of times. Interruptions while listening to books on tape often make me miss something relevant to the story plot, especially with cozy mysteries, etc. So the second listen was even more enjoyable (and answered many questions running around in my head)! The third listen was purely pleasurable and made me anxiously await my "credit day" so that I could buy books one and two of the series to listen to them.
The outstanding feature of this book is that it takes place in Key West. I've not visited this region of our nation so I am visiting through the words of the author to see the sites and sounds of the islands. I listened to a book entitled Flashback by Nevada Barr that takes place about 70 miles away from the Keys. The most they have in common is that they are both mysteries with historical overtones.
The fact that I became so emersed in the story that I forgot I was listening to a narration of the story is the best compliment I can give Ms. Dawe. I thoroughly enjoyed her reading of all three stories. I would be very happy to read another book narrated by her.
I wish I had started with book one of the series, but that wasn't possible, because Audible offered book three as the series sale item, not book one! LOL! Still, it didn't hurt to read the last book first since the three books center on different people in this interesting cast of characters.
It was a very pleasant story and I'm glad I had a chance to purchase this at a discounted rate. Believe me, I did go back and purchase the first two books at the member rate! What more is there to say?
Not a good read, it repeated itself and just got boring - couldn't wait till it ended.
read other reviews after I listened to this so no I don't think so not good reviews at all.
yes she read the book well.
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
