Publisher's Summary

Special Agent Jess Harris has spent more than a decade studying the many faces of evil. In her determination to stop a serial killer, she broke the rules, and it cost her everything.

With her career in need of resuscitation and her love life dead and buried, Jess jumps at a chance to advise on a case that has the top detectives of Birmingham, Alabama, stumped. But the case forces her to confront all the reasons she put her hometown-and her first love-in her rearview mirror.

Four young women have gone missing, and Police Chief Dan Burnett will do anything to find them before it's too late - even if it means asking for help from the woman who has spent a decade avoiding him. Jess agrees to lend a hand and welcomes the diversion of a new case, a new life to save to make up for the victims she's lost. But then the unthinkable happens: the crazed serial killer from her past follows Jess to Birmingham. The situation is becoming increasingly desperate, and time is swiftly running out...

    "Is Jess Brenda Lee Johnson of The Closer?"
    Where does Obsession rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It ranks at the top. I am hooked on this series and cannot get enough. I will listen to the entire series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jess because she reminds of me and my favorite t.v deputy chief Brenda Lee Johnson from the Closer. She is driven, quirky, lonely, unconventional and exceptionally talented detective. While her methods are unconventional and she skirts the boundaries of proper standards she gets results. I love the fact that she is a complex character who is still developing. I cannot wait to see how she changes over the course of the series.


    Which character – as performed by Carol Schneider – was your favorite?

    Carol got Jess down cold. She did a great job with all of the characters!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The were several but the one when she got the text message and then went to each room in Dan's parents house with her gun. I was also moved when she went into the barn and found the girls in the open grave. That was a great scene.


    Any additional comments?

    Thanks audible for introducing me to this wonderful character and series.

    "GREAT SERIES!! GREAT NARRATOR!!"

    This is a wild ride, a chilling and human story. Debra Webb puts a human face on evil and Carol Schneider brings it to life authentically. Well done all around.
